A drug affected man has been lurking around a cafe at a Fountain Gate Shopping Centre and security has not dealt with the problem, staff say.

The manager of the family-run cafe, Fadi Dahou, said the man often harassed customers for money.

Customers were also leaving the cafe mid-way through their meals as they felt uncomfortable, he said.

The man is described as Caucasion, 190cm tall, slim build, beard, and generally wore a hoodie and jeans.

Mr Daho, who did not wish to publish the name of his cafe, said security were failing to keep the area safe.

He said he contacted the centre security about the matter only to be emailed with a reply stating: “If you see something, call us.”

“Security just speak to him but doesn’t leave.”

Mr Dahou said he would contact police the next time the man entered the cafe.

A Scentre Group spokesperson said the safety and security of their customers, retail partners and employees was always the centre’s priority.
