Men damage cars then throw rock through door of police station

POLICE charged an 18-year-old man with wilful damage and trespass after a series of incidents at Boonah police station in the early hours of yesterday morning.

A police spokeswoman said a police officer was inside the police station conducting an alcohol breath test about 2.15am when he heard something going on outside.

When he went outside he found the rear driver's side window of a marked duel-cab ute had been smashed with a rock.

At the back of the station he found a private car with both side mirrors ripped off. They had been left near the marked ute.

The spokeswoman said a man returned to the station about 3am and threw a large rock through the front door.

Police conducted a search on foot and in cars and spoke to people who gave them information about the incidents.

The spokeswoman said that as a result, an 18-year-old man was charged with wilful damage and a 16-year-old juvenile male was cautioned on three counts of wilful damage.

Three juveniles will be interviewed at a later date and are currently assisting police with inquiries.

The 18-year-old is expected to appear in court at a later date.

Meanwhile, police are searching for an armed assailant following a robbery at an Ipswich service station on Friday night.

Police said a man walked into the Woolworths Caltex service station at Booval Fair about 8.30pm.

Initial investigations indicate the man entered the service station, off Brisbane Rd and approached the attendant.

The man produced a weapon and demanded cash.

He was handed a sum of money and a packet of cigarettes.

He ran from store and back towards Cole St.

The man is described as being Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander in appearance, about 150cm with a thin build and brown eyes.

No one was physically injured during the incident.

Police urge anyone who may have witnessed a person acting suspiciously in the area around the time of the incident to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or go to crimestoppers.com.au.

Information can be given anonymously and a reward may apply where the information leads to a successful arrest and conviction.
