Man pulls knife on Gold Coast servo attendant but agrees to wear mask

A man has pulled a knife on a service station attendant on the Gold Coast, demanding tobacco and cash.

He then walked around the store for a short time before grabbing two cooler bags and approaching the counter again where he pulled a kitchen knife from the pocket of his hoodie.

Police say the 22-year-old attendant complied with his demands, placing cash, tobacco and food items into the bag before the man fled the scene.

The man was wearing a white hoodie, grey pants, a maroon beanie and glasses.

Investigations are ongoing.
