A 23-year-old man is in hospital after he was robbed in parklands in Southport overnight.

At around 10pm the victim and a 21-year-old woman were approached by an unknown man who demanded money.

When the 23-year-old first refused, he was stabbed in his back and chest before he complied and handed over his wallet.


He remains in a serious condition in Gold Coast University Hospital.

Police are looking for a man believed to be in his late teens or early twenties, with a slim build and approximately 170-175cms.

He was dressed in yellow shorts and a black zip-up hooded jacket.
