Noosa camera shop staff chase man to help in arrest

Brett Wortman

STAFF members of a Noosa camera shop have helped Sunshine Coast Police catch a man who allegedly held up the store at knifepoint yesterday.

Two male employees from Camera House at the Noosa Homemaker Centre chased the 35-year-old man after he allegedly threatened staff with a pocket knife and stole camera equipment.

Police chased the man along Gympie Tce, where he was arrested and allegedly found to have a knife.

It was the second time in a week the public has been able to help police make arrests.

On Thursday, a staff member at a Mudjimba newsagency followed a man and detained him after an armed robbery.

Police charged a 25-year-old man over the incident, in which he allegedly entered the Mudjimba Esplanade store armed with a knife and demanded money from a female employee.

The staff member refused to hand over cash and hit the man with a bag of rubbish before he fled the store.

A male employee got in a scuffle with the man and he was detained until police arrived.

The 35-year-old charged over the Noosa robbery will appear before Maroochydore Magistrates Court this morning.
