Police investigating wounding at Robina

Police have arrested a 17-year-old boy, after a man was wounded at Robina this afternoon.

It will be alleged that around 11.15am, a 26-year-old Southport man and friend were riding electric scooters along a footpath running parallel to Robina Town Centre Drive, when they were approached at the intersection of Collyer Quays by a masked male armed with a knife.

Without speaking, the male has allegedly slashed the knife towards the pair as they rode past, resulting in the 26-year-old man sustaining a minor stab-wound to his right armpit.

The male then allegedly chased the pair for a short distance, before they managed to ride away and notify police.

Police attended the scene and patrolled the area, arresting a 17-year-old Robina boy at Huntingdale Crescent around midday.

The 26-year-old Southport man was treated by paramedics at the scene, before he was transported to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

Investigations continue.
