'Cross-dressing thief' holds up Melbourne fast food cafe

A man dressed in women's clothing has been captured on CCTV holding up a fast food restaurant in Melbourne.

The man entered the cafe on Sunday, demanded money at the counter, and told staff he had a detonator in the paper cup he was holding.

He is then seen dropping money as he leaves the premises, and eventually running away outside without his wig.

Australian police, who released the footage, say they do not have evidence that an explosive device was used in the incident.
