Police have vowed to crackdown on a shopping centre dubbed Australia's worst mall. 

Market Square Shopping Centre, in Geelong, Victoria, has become a no-go zone for terrified locals.

Footage from A Current Affair shows a toothless man wielding a crow bar while shouting outside the shopping centre.
