Man faces court over Brisbane armed robbery

A 27-year-old Brisbane man has faced court over the attempted armed robbery of a jewellery store in the Queensland city.

Police alleged that the man – who is described as Caucasian, of medium build and from the seaside suburb of Manly – entered the shop in the city’s vibrant Queen Street shopping district at 4.30pm on 20 February, armed with a knife.

While he did not take any jewellery during the attack, CCTV recorded him pushing a 72-year-old male staff member to the ground before running away.

Following the release of surveillance footage and appeals to the public for information, police arrested the suspect a week later at an address in the affluent suburb of Wakerley.

He was charged with attempted armed robbery, serious assault of a person over 60 and entering premises with the intention to commit an indictable offence.

He appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court on February 28.
