Sydney: A shop manager was pelted with sex toys by an intruder wearing a wig and crotchless pants in an Australian erotica store stick-up, police said Sunday.
The man forced his way into the Brisbane adult shop through the roof just before 5:30 am on Saturday, setting off the alarm.
"Upon being disturbed the man threw a number of items he was attempting to steal out of his hands and proceeded to climb back through the roof," police said in a statement.
"Police located the man climbing down from the roof of the business."
According to local media reports, the intruder was wearing a wig, crotchless pants and a dress.
He was charged with break and enter and drug possession offences.
"There`s definitely a funny side to it," the manager, Fiona Coldrick, told The Australian newspaper.
"Obviously what he was wearing was pretty amusing.
"You`ve got to see the lighter side of it."
It is the second sex store robbery in northern Australia this week.
On Thursday, a man crashed through the roof of a Cairns erotica outlet during a botched burglary, making off with a "Fantasy Fetish" pack which included a saddle. He was arrested nearby and faced court on Friday.
