Robbed of pokies winnings at knifepoint on Friday night

HE thought it was his lucky night when he won about $600 on the pokies, but it soon turned sour for one Rockhampton man who was robbed at knifepoint on Friday night.

But it didn't take long for police to catch up with two of his three alleged attackers, one of whom appeared in Rockhampton Magistrates Court yesterday.

Dylan Eric Warcon appeared briefly after being arrested and charged with robbery around 3pm on Sunday.

An 18-year-old man has also been charged with robbery and fraud and will face court today.

The 24-year-old victim received minor injuries including cuts to his lip and forearm.

Detective Acting Inspector for the Capricornia District, Paul Elliot, said police were still looking for a 22-year-old Rockhampton man.

"If you participate in any kind of anti-social behaviour or you assault people, you will get caught, you will go to court, and you will suffer the consequences," he said.

Warcon did not apply for bail and was remanded in custody to appear on Thursday.

If you have any information about the incident please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
