Attempted burglary charges laid after frightening encounter on the Gold Coast

Residents of an Ashmore home have woken to find a man trying to break into their house.

The 29-year-old allegedly prowled around a house in Pinaroo Crescent in the early hours yesterday morning.

The occupants of the house were up around 5.40am, when they spotted the man in their outdoor area from the kitchen.


They yelled out at him, before he allegedly pointed a weapon at them and then fled.

Police have since charged the man with attempted burglary.

He’s due to front Southport court next month.
