Police are hunting for two men who stormed a Logan hotel during the early hours of Monday morning armed with an axe and a chainsaw and assaulted a security guard.
The pair entered the hotel on Pub Lane in Greenbank about 2.40am and demanded cash from staff at the bar.
A security guard confronted them and told them to leave, leading to the man wielding the axe punching the guard in the face, while the other man started the chainsaw and used it to damage the bar.
Both of the would-be robbers then left the hotel empty-handed and the security guard was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
