Redcliffe attempted armed robbery

Cannington Detectives are investigating an attempted armed robbery at a hotel in Redcliffe last night, 28 January 2020.

Around 11.05pm, two men on a white motorcycle attended a hotel located on Kanowna Avenue East. The pillion passenger, still wearing a motorcycle helmet entered the hotel reception area. The rider stayed with the motorcycle.

As a hotel staff member went to speak to the man, the man threatened the victim with a hammer.

The man swung the hammer several times at the staff member, striking him to the head at least once causing a 5cm laceration to his head. The victim was able to pull the motorcycle helmet from the man who then fled outside. The man and the rider both left the area on the motorcycle.

Detectives are seeking to identify the two men pictured who they believed can assist them with this investigation.

Anyone with any information relating to this incident, or the identity of the two men, are urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at Callers may remain anonymous if they wish.
