Alleged armed robbery at Cannonvale


Whitsunday Police are searching for a man who is accused of pulling a knife on another man.

At about 9.10pm on July 3, the alleged victim was walking away from a venue on Shute Harbour Road, Cannonvale when he was approached from behind and told to hand over his money.

A wallet was given to the armed man in response.

Unsuccessful attempts were made by the alleged perpetrator to remove the cash from the secured wallet and as a result, it was dumped on the ground nearby and later retrieved intact.

Nobody was injured.

Police have launched a public appeal to identify the man involved.

He is described as being Caucasian in appearance, roughly 25-years-old, approximately 187 centimetres tall (6 foot 2 inches), medium build, full length beard, wearing a black hoodie, cap underneath, full length black pants and blue joggers.

Anyone who may have access to dash-cam vision from 8pm to 10pm on July 3 of the area is encouraged to contact Policelink or Crime Stoppers.
