Robber hides in see-through plastic bag

A ROBBER wearing a transparent plastic bag over his head has held up a service station on the Gold Coast.

Police said the man entered the BP service station at Labrador about 3.53pm yesterday wearing the plastic bag, and wielding a large carving knife, according to the Courier-Mail.

He approached the male attendant and demanded cash.

In response, the worker placed the money tray from the register on the counter and the robber helped himself.

He was spotted running through the Sharks Football Club carpark in Olsen Ave, heading east.

The worker was able to give police a good description of the bandit. He was described as about 170cm tall in his mid-20s and wearing three-quarter length denim shorts, a white T-shirt and a sky blue baseball cap.

The man handed himself in to police today. Police expect to charge the man over the robbery.
