Man bashed in violent robbery in Helensvale

TWO men robbed the Gold Coast Country Club in Helensvale on Thursday night.

A 60-year-old man told Police that at around 9:40pm two men wearing balaclavas entered his home and one hit him with a baseball bat.

The other man also indicated that he was armed with a firearm, but it was never shown.


The pair then forced the man to go with them to the golf club on Country Club Drive and let them into the clubhouse.

Once inside the men stole some money before forcing their victim into the boot of his own vehicle and driving a short distance along Country Club Drive.

The 60-year-old man was let out of the boot before the pair drove away in the stolen white Hyundai Sonata with Queensland registration 515HEY.

The man’s wallet and mobile phone was also stolen during the incident.

He was transported to Gold Coast University Hospital with cuts and abrasions to his head and torso.

Anyone who may have seen the vehicle or has any information regarding the matter is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
