Police hunt underway after nurse allegedly abducted on Gold Coast
A manhunt is underway after the alleged robbery and abduction of a male nurse on Queensland’s Gold Coast this morning.
About 3:30am, a 25-year-old man was held up by several men wearing balaclavas and armed with knives and a handgun near a Gold Coast hospital at Benowa, police said.
When he was unable to hand over cash he was allegedly forced into the boot of his own car and driven to an ATM at Parklands Drive at Parkwood to withdraw money.
The man was then placed back in the boot of his car and about 4:20am the car crashed into a fence on Kurrambee Avenue at Ashmore and the offenders fled, leaving the victim behind.
