Masked man armed with knife talked out of robbing store
A man who entered a Brisbane business wearing a Halloween mask and armed with a knife, left empty handed after being talked down by a staff member.
The man entered the Manly Road business in Tingalpa at 10.45pm on Friday night and threatened the staff member while demanding money.
CCTV shows the two men speaking at the entrance to the store.
The 67-year-old staff member then secured himself in the console office and the man left the business empty handed.
Police are now trying to identify the offender, described as being 178cm tall, Caucasian in appearance, with a slim build.
He was wearing a light grey long-sleeved shirt, grey pants with two black stripes down the leg and black shoes. He was also wearing a "devil Halloween" mask.
Anyone with information is urged to contact police.
