Mum and bub held at knifepoint, comfit of alleged attacker released

POLICE have released a comfit image of a man they wish to speak with following the alleged armed robbery of a Gold Coast mother and her 15-month-old baby in Southport on Monday.

The 19-year-old mother was pushing her baby in a stroller along Eugaree St when they were approached by a man just before 1pm.

It’s alleged that the man produced a large carving knife and demanded money from the woman.


She handed over around $500 in cash and the man fled the scene on foot, last seen running towards Ferry Road.

He was wearing a dark hooded jumper with “Compton” insignia on the front (similar to that pictured), black long pants and thongs at the time of the heist.

No one was physically injured as a result of the robbery.
