Salvo stabbed, robbed of donations

POLICE are searching for a man who stabbed and robbed a Salvation Army worker at Tweed Heads yesterday.

In what police have described as a “low act”, a 53-year-old man had his charity donation tin stolen from him in the car park of Tweed City Shopping Centre.

The Salvation Army worker had been in the shopping centre collecting donations.

He was walking back to his car when he was pushed from behind by a man.

A scuffle between the two men followed and the Salvation Army worker received two stab wounds to his back.

The victim was taken to Tweed Heads Hospital where he was treated and released yesterday.

The attacker, who has been described as Caucasian in appearance and aged in his twenties, about 170cm tall with a medium build and wearing dark coloured track pants with a light blue rain jacket, ran from the scene with the collection tin.

Police confirmed this morning that the man had not been sighted since the incident.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
