Police investigate armed robbery at Kingston

Police have charged two men, following the alleged armed robbery of a man at Kingston last night.

Around 8.15pm, a 37-year-old Crestmead man was running along Juers Street when he was approached by two men who were not known to him.

It will be alleged one of the men produced a machete and threatened the 37-year-old, who attempted to run away but tripped over, before he was punched and hit over the head with the machete.

The two men then allegedly pinned the man to the ground and stole his wallet and mobile phone before fleeing the scene.

The victim sustained a head laceration and was transported to the Logan Hospital in a stable condition.

Police attended the scene and conducted patrols during which they located two men.

A 36-year-old Slacks Creek man and a 23-year-old Slacks Creek man have now each been charged with one count of armed robbery in company using violence.

Both are scheduled to appear at the Beenleigh Magistrates Court (today) Monday July 15.
