Help nab balaclava bandits

POLICE are appealing for anyone with information about two armed hold-ups in Rockhampton overnight Saturday to come forward.

Shortly before midnight on Saturday two balaclava-clad bandits, armed with a rifle, attempted to hold up the Park Avenue Hotel.

They were disturbed by a customer.

A shot was fired into the floor.

Only half-an-hour later two people robbed the Berserker Tavern, one of them armed with a rifle.

Anyone with information about either crime should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
