Police have been confronted at a café as they tried to enforce Covid-19 compliance rules.

Three officers entered the Vintage Apron at Capalaba in Brisbane‘s south, when they were surrounded by customers and staff chanting ‘leave the shop’. 

Police were responding to multiple alleged reports of Covid health order breaches including patrons not wearing masks inside the venue, as is required under Queensland law.

Footage shared by 9NEWS shows the crowd turn on the officers when they attempt to question a staff member. 

‘The question I want to ask you, we’re gonna have to put in a report why people aren’t wearing masks here,’ an officer is heard saying. 

Onlookers with phones recording were heard telling the worker ‘don’t answer it’. 

‘Hopefully everyone keeping a cool head, no one getting angry or worked up,’ the officer said.   

However, the crowd fired back at the officers.  

‘Leave mate, what’s your Queensland Police Service motto? With honour we serve? Where is the honour?’ a patron is heard saying. 

‘You guys have broken your law by your oath that you serve the community, which is us.’

The staff member is then heard quoting conspiracy theories asking the officers if they have heard of ‘the crime against humanity’. 

‘Have you guys heard about the crime against humanity?’ He says.

‘Are you guys gonna all be liable for that?’

The officers eventually exit the café amid the backlash with one officer saying ‘I care about people’. 

Queensland Police said it charged a 53-year-old man who was fined for not complying with the Covid-19 direction.
