POLICE have released CCTV footage of a brazen robbery at a Southport petrol station where an alleged offender didn’t even bother to cover his face.

About 2.40am Saturday morning the man entered a service station on Marine Pde, walked up to the counter and demanded the attendant hand over cash and cigarettes.

The employee complied with his demands before the man fled the scene on foot, travelling towards Little Norman St.

The 29-year-old male employee was not physically injured during the incident.

Police attended and conducted extensive patrols of the area but were unable to locate the man.

He is described as caucasian in appearance, aged in his mid-late 20s with dark hair, a “rats tail”, blue eyes and was last seen wearing a cap backwards, grey singlet and red shorts.

Anyone who recognises the man is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 FREE.
