Police lay armed robbery charges at Murarrie and Cooparoo

Police have charged a man with the armed robbery of a Murarrie service station on January 7 and the attempted robbery of a man at Cooparoo overnight.

It will be alleged that a man armed with a knife entered a Wynnum Road, Murarrie service station around 9.55pm on the 7th threatening a 37-yeear-old male employee before fleeing on foot with a sum of cash.

Police will allege a man armed with a knife attended the Coorparoo Railway Station last night (January 15) where he threatened a 21-year-old male employee, forcing him into an office area demanding cash.

When no cash could be provided it will be further alleged the man forced the employee to change clothes with him before he called police at around 9.10pm regarding a man acting suspiciously.

Police attended and were quickly advised by the victim that the offender was now wearing his uniform.

The man was arrested without incident.

A 22-year-old Murarrie man has been denied police bail and is due to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today charged with armed robbery (January 7) and attempted armed robbery and deprivation of liberty (January 15).

No one was physically injured during either incident.
