An 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy have been charged over the armed robbery of a man in a public toilet block in Beaudesert last week.
It will be alleged that a 26-year-old man entered a public toilet block in a park on Beaudesert Nerang Road and Brooklands Drive on Sunday March 17 where he noticed a man inside.
The victim proceeded to enter a cubicle, where he was approached from behind by another man who allegedly produced a knife and demanded the man’s wallet and phone.

After handing over his wallet the phone, the victim was then locked inside the cubicle with a rope and the pair fled.
The victim was able to escape the cubicle and contact police shortly after.
A week on from the incident, police have charged an 18-year-old man and a 17-year-old boy, both from Beaudesert.
They’ve been charged with armed robbery, deprivation of liberty, attempted fraud and possessing utensils.
The 18-year-old will appear in court next month.
