A man has been threatened at gun-point, robbed and car-jacked by people he thought were friends.
According to Police, the 20-year-old was driving a black Jeep Compass wagon when he picked up a male friend, aged 18, in a carpark on Adelaide Street in Tweed Heads around 9pm on Saturday.
He then drove to Dry Dock Road and picked up three people – two men and a woman – believed to be friends of the 18-year-old.

The group travelled towards Cabarita, stopping at a park in Kingscliff where things quickly turned sinister.
They all got out of the vehicle and the 20-year-old man was assaulted, held at gun-point and forced into the back of the Jeep by one of the men.
The woman continued to drive south for around 15-minutes, before heading west to Palmvale, where the man was kicked out of his vehicle.
He had been robbed of a phone, headphones and a bank card.
The group drove off in the Jeep and Police are now working to track them down.
