A 60-year-old local man, who was a customer in the bottle shop, saw what was going on and followed the man outside and attempted to restrain him.
Police say the pair then got into an altercation, with the 60-year-old receiving a significant laceration to his arm from a ‘bladed weapon’.
The would-be-thief then fled the scene, leaving the alcohol behind.
Following investigations Logan detectives arrested a 20-year-old Waterford West man and charged him with armed robbery and immediately after wounded another.
He was denied police bail and is due to appear in the Beenleigh Magistrates Court today.
The injured man was transported to hospital for treatment.
