Police lay armed robbery charges at Toowoomba

Toowoomba detectives have this morning charged a man following an alleged armed robbery late last month.

Around 3.45pm on Tuesday April 26, police will allege two men approached a food delivery driver on Betty Street, with one of the men producing a knife before demanding the keys to the driver’s vehicle.

The male victim, who was not physically harmed, complied and police will further allege the men fled in his Silver 2004 Toyota Camry, which was later found abandoned in Diagonal Street, South Toowoomba.

A 20-year-old Newtown man was charged with one count each of armed robbery and unlawful use of a motor vehicle. He was denied police bail and will appear in Toowoomba Magistrates Court today, Monday May 16.

Investigations continue.
