Armed rob­ber at large

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - NEWS -

PO­LICE are hunt­ing for a pis­tol-wield­ing rob­ber who threat­ened car­a­van park staff at gun­point.

The of­fender has been at large since com­mit­ting the ter­ri­fy­ing crime, in which a woman had the gun pointed at her head, at Torquay’s Lazy Acres Car­a­van Park last Sun­day.

He stole cash and mo­bile phones, ran away down Ex­eter St and onto Bide­ford St.

Images of the wanted man, which were cap­tured on CCTV, have been re­leased.

De­tec­tives hope some­one from the pub­lic will recog­nise the man to help them ar­rest him.

The rob­ber is de­scribed as about 170cm tall with a skinny build and dark hair.

While ex­e­cut­ing the day­light crime, he wore a grey hoody, dark-coloured pants and sun­glasses.

Luck­ily, no one was phys­i­cally in­jured dur­ing the armed rob­bery. If you recog­nise the man, or have any in­for­ma­tion re­gard­ing the in­ci­dent, call Po­licelink on 131 444.
