Police call for help to solve crimes

POLICE are still hunting for the two men who invaded a North Rockhampton home and held a gun to a resident on Tuesday night.

They are urging the public to help solve crimes that have taken place in the city over the past week.

Yesterday investigations continued into the armed home invasion which unfolded on Elphinstone Street just after 10pm.

One of the intruders began to wrestle with an occupant before the other reached for a gun.

During the incident a demand was made for cash and drugs.

The men fled after a small sum of cash and a computer were handed over.

Police believe it may have been a case of mistaken identity.

The intruders have been described as Caucasians with broad shoulders. One man is 180cm, while the other is 190cm in height.

Authorities are also searching for the two men who robbed a teenager at knifepoint in the Hungry Jacks carpark at midnight on September 24.

The young men stole his wallet and mobile phone before fleeing on bicycles into Kershaw Gardens.

Investigations continue into the man who intruded at a Gracemere woman's house late at night on Tuesday, September 29, threatening her for cash and personal belongings.

Anyone with information that may assist police with these crimes should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
