A second person has been charged over the armed robbery of a man at West Burleigh almost two weeks ago.

Around 4.15am on Friday November 30, a 27-year-old man was sitting in his car on Tallebudgera Creek Road, when another man jumped into the vehicle armed with a knife and demanded money.

Police said the man allegedly stole a laptop before a second man stole the victim’s mobile phone.
