Gun is pulled on club worker

INVESTIGATIONS are continuing into an armed hold-up at the Kirra Surf Life Saving Club on Sunday night.

A 42-year-old male surf club staff member was threatened at gun-point just before midnight DST when he was confronted by a man armed with a hand gun.

Police said the offender was described as being in his mid-30s, 185cm tall, medium build and wearing a balaclava over his face.

He was also described as wearing dark blue jeans, a long-sleeved grey shirt and white shoes.

Detective Inspector Brian Swan, from the Southern Investigative Group Gold Coast CIB, said the worker was distressed by the incident but not injured.

The man threatened the worker and demanded cash.

The worker was forced to open a safe and the man stole money, which was placed in a satchel bag that he was carrying.

The armed man fled on foot and was last seen walking north before crossing Marine Parade towards Miles Street.
