Man with flower pot on head wields chainsaw during robbery
6AM, UPDATE: An Ipswich teenager is accused of going on a drunken late-night chainsaw rampage inside a petrol station while wearing a flower pot on his head.
Police rushed to the 7-Eleven service station on Ash St, Flinders View, following calls for help from two terrified shop attendants.
It will be alleged the man - who was wearing a flower pot over his head in an attempt to conceal his identity - entered the store about 4.30am on Monday, while two staff members were cleaning a coffee machine.
Wielding a chainsaw which was running at the time, the man lunged at the store attendants, who retreated into a back room.
Police allege the man then used the chainsaw to damage a window and several display racks in the shop, before exposing his buttocks to the store attendants. He is accused of damaging a parked vehicle upon fleeing the scene.
It will be alleged the man made demands for money, but left the store only with a bottle of soft drink and the chainsaw.
