Woman ambushed by knife-wielding teens

A GOLD Coast woman has been bailed up by a pair of knife-wielding teenagers as she returned home from shopping this morning.

It’s understood two young men followed the woman inside her Upper Coomera home shortly after 11am on Monday, where they forced her into a chair and robbed her of her credit card and cash.

They also reportedly cut the phone line and threatened the lady that they’d come back if she called police.


Officers are conducting extensive patrols of the area, looking for the duo who fled the scene in a stolen grey hatchback which is believed to have also been involved in an earlier petrol drive off at Coombabah.

They have been described as teenagers and having dark skin.
