Tomahawk-wielding duo charged over home invasion

Two men have been charged over a terrifying home invasion in Logan, where a woman was threatened with a small axe.

It’s alleged the duo forced their way through a locked back door, into the property on Limerick Drive at Crestmead about 1pm on Friday.

The men allegedly threatened a female occupant with a tomahawk and demanded her mobile phone and keys to her car.


She handed them over and the men ran to the car, but were unable to start it.

They eventually gave up and instead took off in the vehicle they had arrived in, with the stolen property.

At around 10:40pm police saw the same vehicle being driven along the Pacific Motorway at Loganholme and tracked it to Kingston Road in Kingston.

The two men then got out and made a run for it before being arrested in bushland a short time later.

A 20-year-old Woodridge man has been charged with armed robbery, unlawful use of a motor vehicle, enter dwelling with intent, attempted unlawful use of a motor vehicle, obstruct police and stealing.

A 28-year-old Tanah Merah man has been charged with unlawful use of a motor vehicle, failing to stop and driving without a licence.

They are due to appear in Beenleigh Magistrates Court today.
