Armed robbery and wounding charges, Sunshine Coast

A man has been charged after allegedly attacking another man with a machete then robbing a fast food outlet on the Sunshine Coast on October 7, Queensland Police say.

It will be alleged around 10pm a 34-year-old Ninderry man was slashed on the arm and back by another man with a machete outside of a licensed premises near the intersection of Scott and Stevens Streets in Yandina.

It is further alleged at around 11.30pm a man entered a fast foot outlet on Currie Street in Nambour, approached the counter and demanded money from the 28-year-old male store attendant, suggesting he was armed.

At around 12.30am on October 8 the same man allegedly broke into a service station on Farrell Street, Yandina and stole some items before filling a vehicle with fuel and driving away without paying.

Ongoing investigations led police to conduct a search at a Kiamba residence yesterday where a 29-year-old Lutwyche man was arrested.

He was charged with two counts of stealing and one count each of wounding, acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm, armed robbery, enter premises with intent to commit indictable offence, enter premises and commit indictable offence by break, receiving tainted property and possession of a knife in a public place.

He is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court today (October 9).
