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

Three officers entered the Vintage Apron at Capalaba in the south of Brisbane and were quickly surrounded by customers and staff shouting ‘leave the store’.

Police responded to several alleged reports of breaches of the Covid health order, including patrons not wearing masks inside the venue, as required by Queensland law.

Footage shared by 9NEWS shows the audience turning on the officers when they try to interrogate an employee.

‘The question I want to ask you is do we have to submit a report on why people do not wear masks here,’ an officer is heard saying.

Spectators with phone recordings were heard saying to the worker ‘do not answer it’.

“Hopefully everyone keeps their heads cool, no one gets angry or agitated,” the officer said.

But the crowd shot back at the officers.

‘Leave buddy, what’s your motto in Queensland Police Service? With honor do we serve? Where’s the credit? ‘ a protector is heard saying.

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

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

‘Have you heard of the crime against humanity?’ he asks.

“Will you all be responsible for it?”

The officers eventually left the cafe in the middle of the backlash with an officer saying ‘I love people’.

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