POLICE IN MELBOURNE Australia are appealing for witnesses after a man dressed as Santa robbed a post office.

Police said Santa “appeared more naughty than nice” when he demanded money from a female staff member at the post office at 11.30am local time.

The woman handed over a quantity of cash which the man placed in a red sack before making his escape.

He drove away in a cream coloured Compass Jeep with allegedly false plates. Victoria police said no weapons were used and no one was injured during the incident.
