A group of armed teenagers in Townsville still on the run

Three teenage men who entered a Townsville property in the early hours of Saturday morning and threatened the home owner with what appeared to be a gun, are still not found. 

The offenders confronted the 46-year-old man inside and demanded money before assaulting him and pulling out the weapon.

The victim was taken to hospital with injuries, none of which were critical. They were seen after the offence heading towards The Strand at around 2am today.


It is alleged that they then were seen with a gun asking a man and women at The Strand for money.

Townsville Police are continuing to investigate and anyone with information is being asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
