It looks like this robber might have a bit of a green thumb.

A masked man, wearing green-and-white gardening gloves and armed with a long knife, possibly a gardening tool, has held up a pharmacy in Southport overnight.

He attacked a security guard, after demanding cash from a pharmacy on Ferry Rd around 7:30 on Thursday evening.

The offender took off after another worker handed over the money and the security guard was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital with minor wounds to his face and hands.

Investigators are calling for anyone with dashcam footage from the area around the time of the incident to come forward.
