Boy arrested while two men on the run following robberies

TWO men are on the run, while a boy is in custody, following two robberies just north of the Gold Coast.

At 11.10 last night, two men entered a Slacks Creek pizza shop and pulled a knife on a staffer.

The worker at the Kingston Road store handed over some cash and the men ran off.


No one was injured as a result of the robbery.

Both men are believed to be in their early 20s and Caucasian in appearance.

One is around 170cms tall, the other 160cms tall.

Meantime, a teenager has been charged following an alleged robbery around 40 minutes later.

He’s accused of implying he had a weapon when demanding cigarettes and cash from a convenience store worker in Logan Central.

The attendant complied and the boy then fled the scene. The 14-year-old was found by police a short time later and has been charged with one count each of burglary, armed robbery and unlawful use of a motor vehicle.

He will be dealt with under the provisions of the Youth Justices Act.
