The moment a gunman in a clown mask robbed a service station in Brisbane has been captured on video.

CCTV footage showed the man run into a petrol station on Cavendish Road in Holland Park about 7.30pm on December 29.

He was dressed in a clown mask, black pants and a jumper, blue shoes and was carrying a black backpack.

He was seen approaching the register with what appeared to be a gun pointed at the worker behind the counter.

The clown then appeared to demand cash before running from the store on foot with the entire cash drawer.

“The employee was not harmed during the incident,” police said.

Detectives released the footage of the robbery in a bid to track down the offender.
They have described him as having a slim build with long dark hair.
Anyone with information that could assist with investigations is urged to contact Queensland Police.
