Police are hunting two armed robbers and a getaway driver who held up a Brisbane service station in the early hours of Friday morning.

The men arrive at the 7-Eleven service station in white Mazda 3 and reverse up to the door.

Wearing all black, two men get out of the back of the vehicle and start smashing the doors with hammers.

When they are unable to successfully smash through they kick and force their way in and try to smash their way through to the cash till.

One of the frustrated robbers hits the service station attendant around the head with a machete. 

The attendant hands over the cash till and the pair dash for the door before jumping in the car.

The Mazda doesn’t get very far – security camera footage shows one of the thieves running back inside to retrieve something he’s forgot – but what the crook grabbed is unclear.   

Police are urging anyone with information to come forward.
