Armed robbery at Currumbin Valley, QLD

Police have released vision as part of a public appeal for information regarding the armed robbery of a man at Currumbin Valley in October, Queensland Police say.

Around 11.30am on Wednesday October 31, a 25-year-old Currumbin Waters man had parked his car in the public carpark at the end of Currumbin Creek Road, Cougal Cascade, and was walking towards the swimming area, when he was approached by two men who were not known to him.

One of the men was armed with a knife and the other man was armed with a firearm.

The men threatened the 25-year-old and demanded his property. The 25-year-old complied and handed over $100 cash, two mobile phones and his car-keys.

The two men then fled the scene in the man’s blue 1999 Nissan Pulsar.

Around 10.30pm on Friday November 9, police located the stolen vehicle burnt-out at Tomewin Mountain Road, Currumbin, bearing incorrect registration plates.

Subsequent investigations indicated that the stolen car, bearing the incorrect numberplates, had been used to steal petrol from a service-station at Robina Town Centre Drive, Robina, around 5.00am on Wednesday November 7.

Police have now released CCTV relating to that petrol drive-off as part of a public appeal for information.

Investigators urge anyone with information as to the identities of the man and woman depicted in this vision, to contact police:
