Police search for offenders

POLICE investigating two armed robberies in Gladstone last week are appealing for information to help locate a 17-year-old boy they believe can assist with enquiries.

On June 28, a driver was parked at a shopping centre taxi rank on Shaw Street, New Auckland around 1.40pm when it is alleged an unknown offender entered the vehicle, threatened the male driver with a knife and demanded money.

The victim handed over a sum of cash and was not physically injured.

The offender has then exited the vehicle and fled on foot in an unknown direction.

Then on July 4 in Gladstone, an offender allegedly entered a Chapman Drive shop around 4.20pm and threatened a female staff member with a knife before demanding a sum of cash from the register and fleeing the scene.

Police appeal to the 17-year-old boy to come forward and anyone who may have information regarding his whereabouts to not approach him but to contact police immediately.

Investigations are ongoing.

If you have information for police, contact Policelink by providing information using the online suspicious activity form 24hrs per day at www.police.qld.gov.au/reporting.
