An Australian sex shop manager was attacked by a robber who was wearing a dress, crotchless fishnet stockings and a wig Saturday morning.
The 34-year-old man allegedly broke into the Totally Adult Shop in Aspley through the ceiling at 5:20 a.m. Saturday and triggered an alarm, police said.
The store’s manager, Fiona Coldrick, responded to the alarm and found the robber inside. When she confronted him he allegedly attacked her with an armful of sex-toys and tried to flee the scene by climbing back through the ceiling.
The suspect was arrested by police on the roof of the store with items worth about $2,000.
He was charged with breaking and entering and possessing dangerous drugs, the Daily Mail reported.
“At first I was frustrated that someone had broken in but there’s definitely a funny side to it,” Coldrick told The Australian. “Obviously what he was wearing was pretty amusing. You’ve got to see the lighter side of it.”
“We have a couple of cross dressers who come in, but they’re lovely,” she added. “We never have any trouble with any of our customers.”
