Gold Coast store worker robbed by men with machete

A young Gold Coast convenience store worker has been confronted by a man wielding a machete, in a frightening early-morning armed robbery.

The 21-year-old has told Police, two men entered the shop, on Price Street in Nerang at around 4.30am on Saturday.

One of them stood at the door while the other approached the male worker, pulled out a machete and demanded money.


The staffer went behind the counter, while the man gave him a large black bag for him to put cash and cigarettes into.

The two men then took off with the money and smokes.
