Machete-wielding man tries to rob Gold Coast bank

A MAN wielding a machete has tried to rob a Gold Coast bank on Monday but escaped empty handed.

At that point, the wannabe thief pushed a female customer and demanded money from her but he eventually left with nothing.


No one was physically injured during the incident and Police investigations are continuing.
