An Indian cabbie in Australia escaped unhurt on Sunday after two passengers tried to rob him at knife point, police said.

Two men have tried to rob a Silver Service cabbie with a knife at Granard Road on Brisbane's southside, the police said.

The cabbie was driving them from the Treasury Casino to Granard Road at Rocklea, couriermail.com reported.

When they reached Granard Road, they allegedly pulled out a knife and demanded cash. But the taxi driver refused and the men fled empty-handed without paying their fare.

The cabbie was not hurt.

Police are examining security camera footage from the cab, and CCTV images from Granard Road to nab the culprits.

Over 100 Indians, including students and taxi drivers, have been attacked in the country in the past one year.
