A shop manager was pelted with sex toys by an intruder wearing a wig and crotchless pants in an Australian erotica-store stick-up, police said.

The man forced his way into the Brisbane adult shop through the roof just before 5.30am on Saturday, setting off the alarm.

"Upon being disturbed, the man threw a number of items he was attempting to steal out of his hands and proceeded to climb back through the roof," police said. "Police located the man climbing down from the roof of the business."

According to local media reports, the intruder was wearing a wig, crotchless pants and a dress.

He was charged with breaking and entering and drug-possession offences.

"There's definitely a funny side to it," the manager, Fiona Coldrick, told The Australian newspaper.

"Obviously what he was wearing was pretty amusing. You've got to see the lighter side of it."

On Thursday, a man crashed through the roof of a Cairns erotica outlet during a botched burglary, making off with a "Fantasy Fetish" pack that included a saddle. He was arrested nearby and faced court on Friday.
