A CALOUNDA store attendant will spend Christmas Day in a bit of pain after standing up to two alleged thieves.

The 55-year-old male NightOwl worker suffered a dislocated shoulder according to Queensland Police Service (QPS) after blocking a punch from one of two alleged offenders who stole chocolate from the Bulcock St store.

A QPS spokesman said the incident occurred about 9.15pm on Christmas Eve.

"It looks like the attendant followed them outside. That's where one of the alleged offenders tried to assault him," the spokesman said.

"When they tried to punch him, he blocked it with his arm. It looks like that dislocated his shoulder."

The shop attendant was taken to Calounda Hospital.

Police are investigating and will assess the store's CCTV footage on Christmas Day.
