Teen, man charged over public toilet robbery in Beaudesert

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.
