Women run from man armed with plank of wood

TWO women ran from a man armed with a plank of wood at a Rockhampton shopping complex last night.

Police were called to the Glenmore Shopping Village shortly after 9.10pm.

A police spokeswoman said the females were approached by the man in the Red Rooster carpark.

She said the man, armed with a plank of wood, yelled at the women and they ran away from him.

The man was not at the scene when officers arrived and patrols got underway to locate him.

A short time later police found and spoke to an 18-year-old male of interest on Farm Street.

He is assisting police with their enquiries.
