Man beaten and robbed in Southport

A man has been hit in the face and robbed in Southport.

The 49-year-old was walking along Marine Parade at around 7:30PM on Wednesday night when four men walked up.

One asked him for drugs. When he said he could not help him and tried to walk off, he was struck in the face by an unknown weapon and fell over.


As he attempted to stand up, he was kicked a number of times before the four men ran off with his bag.

The 49-year-old man was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital with a gash to his face.

Investigations are continuing.
