A FRIGHTENED worker at a Beaudesert sandwich store barricaded herself inside the restaurant yesterday after a naked man took refuge in an outdoor dining area.
The man - who appeared to have brought in the new year with too much revelry - was spotted taking a naked stroll down Mt Lindesay Hwy late in the afternoon on New Year's Day.
The man fled after being confronted by the father of the store worker.
After walking some distance, the man climbed a wall and hid in the store's outdoor dining area - usually only accessible through the restaurant.
A woman working inside called police and her father for help and locked herself inside.
Her father arrived before police and confronted the man, who did a naked vault over a side fence and fled.
