Police allege that just before 7.30pm on Friday, four men forced their way into a home on Lilli Pilli Drive by breaking down the front door.

The men, who were allegedly armed with what appeared to be firearms, threatened a 24-year-old woman inside before stealing a jewellery box and mobile phone.

The 18-year-old Springwood man and 19-year-old Redbank Plains man have now both been charged with one count each of enter dwelling with intent and armed robbery.

Both are due to appear at the Southport Magistrates Court today.

Police say investigations are continuing.
