A man wearing a cape and underpants on his head is the subject of a manhunt in Melbourne after an unsuccessful armed robbery.

The man allegedly threatened a staff member in a Port Melbourne hotel with a firearm about 2am on Wednesday.

However, he left empty-handed after the alleged plot did not go to plan.

Footage released by police shows the man running along the footpath before tripping on what police believe to a cape he was wearing.
