Police seek man who attempted to rob service station in ‘devil mask’ day after Halloween

A man wearing a devil mask has walked away from a robbery after attempting to hold up a service station in Queensland.

A man who threatened a service station worker with a knife while wearing a “devil” mask is being sought by police after he attempted to rob the business the day after Halloween.

Queensland detectives are seeking witnesses after the alleged attempted robbery of a Brisbane service station last week.

A man entered the business on Manly Road in Tingalpa, east of the Brisbane CBD about 10.45pm on November 1.

The man allegedly threatened a staff member with a knife and demanded money, according to Queensland Police.

The staff member, 67, managed to secure himself in a console office at the business, and the man in the mask then left the business empty-handed.

The man sought by police is described as being 178cm tall, caucasian and slim. He was wearing a light grey long-sleeved shirt, grey pants with two black stripes down the leg and black shoes.

Anyone with information is urged to contact police.
