Man robbed and threatened with knives at Main Beach

A man’s been targeted by armed robbers while driving along SeaWorld Drive at Main Beach on Tuesday morning.

The 35-year-old noticed he was being tailgated by a black Ford Focus hatchback at around 8:00AM.

He pulled his vehicle over to the side of the road at the end of Seaworld Drive where the hatchback also stopped.


Three men got out and threatened the man with knives while demanding he hand over his wallet.

One grabbed the chain from his neck and stole his gold watch before they drove off.

The man received a minor laceration to his neck.

He managed to take a photo of the vehicle as they drove away and investigators are urging anyone who may have seen the vehicle in the Main Beach area this morning to contact police.
