A MAN who robbed a Gold Coast jewellery store and then reportedly ran down the store assistant in a getaway car, has handed himself into police.

Around 10:20am on August 22, the man entered the Love Lara Jewellers shop at the Treetops Shopping Centre and tried to rob the female shopkeeper before fleeing the store.

The female shop assistant chased after him out into the carpark and was then hit twice by the getaway car.


The woman was rushed to Gold Coast Hospital with serious pelvic injuries.

The man wanted over the incident reportedly turned himself in to the Southport police station earlier today.
