WATCH: Axe-wielding thief flashes bum-crack during robbery of Gold Coast coffee shop

An axe-wielding thief dressed in a high-vis shirt and hard hat is on the run after stealing cash from an Ormeau coffee shop in a rather revealing armed robbery.

The armed bandit stormed into the Eggersdorf Road business around 5.30am on Sunday and confronted staff behind the counter.

He then began smashing into cash registers before stealing a cash drawer and fleeing in a black VE Commodore Omega.


Luckily, no one was injured during the incident.

The man is described as being Caucasian in appearance, about 178cm tall with a solid build and facial hair.

He was wearing a yellow and navy high-vis long-sleeved shirt, dark shorts, tanned work boots with no laces, an orange hard hat with pink and white stickers, gloves and had his face covered with material.


Anyone who may recognise the man is urged to contact police.
