Delivery driver robbed at knife-point by man in robe

Investigations are underway after a delivery driver was robbed by a man in a robe in Brisbane overnight.

Police were called to an address on Dornoch Terrace in Highgate Hill, just after 11.00pm.

The driver had delivered a food order to the man at the address just moments earlier, though when the driver returned to his vehicle, he was approached behind by the man.


The man – dressed in a cream coloured dress robe – produced a knife and demanded the driver’s keys, before fleeing on the motorcycle towards Gladstone Road, leaving the driver stranded.

Police are calling on anyone with information about the incident to come forward, with the man described as Asian in appearance and 180 centimetres tall.

No injuries were reported during the incident.
