Sydney's Lindt Cafe Vandalised

The Lindt Cafe in Sydney's Martin Place remains closed as police search for evidence in the hope of tracking down the vandal who hurled rocks through its windows.

Five gaping holes can be seen in the windows of the cafe, the scene of a deadly siege in December.

Police officers are inside the premises.

The front entrance, which usually opens at 7.30am for customers, remains locked.

Broken glass from the windows overlooking Martin Place has been cleaned up from the busy pedestrian area outside.

It's hoped CCTV footage will help police find the vandal who threw the rocks in the early hours of Wednesday.

"We believe a man in his 40s with facial hair and tanned skin may be able to assist with inquiries," a NSW police spokeswoman said.

An inquest into the siege, which claimed the life of hostages Katrina Dawson and Tori Johnson, as well as gunman Man Monis, is set to continue in Sydney on Wednesday.

The Lindt Cafe closed for several months after the siege and reopened in March.
