“The two men demanded the 18-year-old’s jacket, wallet and phone and he was struck in the face with the handle of the weapon by one of the men,” Queensland Police said.

“As the 18-year-old handed over his property, the other man shot him in the face with gel pellets only then he realised the firearms were gel blasters”.

The pair then fled in the vehicle, described as being a Mitsubishi sedan.

Detectives are urging anyone with information or dash cam and CCTV footage from that area around 2am, June 11, to come forward.
