My god! Look at the honker on that fellow! With a nose like that i am sure that he will be easy to find as long as you stay upwind of him. His mother must have thought he had a winged keel when she gave birth to him.

We should call him Yacht-head.

Clearly he is wearing prosthesis to put the police off the scent.

Couldn’t a duress alarm disable the front doors from opening or something. Pretty brazen.

Don’t you need to show your card / sign in at these clubs?

Would you want to work in an establishment where the bloke who just robbed you is locked in with you?

I’ve been to the Mawson club a number of times when there hasn’t been anyone on the door. Just walked straight through.

Very brazen. Not really the sort of crime spree which is sustainable, unless he is from out of town, or the nose really is fake.
