The robbery comes just hours after a man took off with a $5,000 sex doll.
The criminal was captured on the Melbourne store’s CCTV camera rabidly attempting to get inside, hacking at a security barrier with a fire extinguisher and bolt cutters.
The balaclava-clad man eventually bursts through and disappears into the shop for a few moments before re-emerging with his new companion, known as ‘Dorothy’.
The CCTV footage shows the man struggling to cut through the barrier, before returning to his van and taking out a fire extinguisher.
He hurls the fire extinguisher at the door, before picking it back up and repeating the action several times.
After eventually finding his way through, he returns to his vehicle allegedly with ‘Dorothy’, a 168 centimetre life-size pleasure doll. She sells for $4,500.
