Armed robber foiled by staff with more knives
A MAN allegedly went into a Gympie Road fast food restaurant and showed a 46-year-old staff member a note saying he was armed with a knife.
The staff member has then allegedly picked up two knives and showed them to the would-be robber.
The man has then fled the scene.
Police arrived after reports of the thief allegedly entering a nearby fast food outlet.
He was then detained and a knife located.
A 19-year-old Kedron man has been charged with attempted armed robbery and will appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court today.
