Police are appealing for help regarding the violent theft of a moped in Noosa on Tuesday, August 18.
Around 7.45pm two men aged 34 and 36 were riding along Noosa Parade when they were approached by a group of young males in the middle of the road.
One member of the group punched the rider in the head, who was wearing a helmet at the time and was then pushed off the scooter.
He and another from the group then fled with the motorised scooter.
Follow up inquiries suggest the pair were seen riding the white Sang Yang, model Jet 4R 50, around Gympie Terrace in the local area as well as in the Caloundra region.
Another person from the group was seen at the corner of Mary and Thomas streets in Noosaville.
The scooter has since been located in Aroona.
Anyone with dashcam vision or further information is urged to contact police.
