A man has been charged for allegedly kicking a Korean student in the head and robbing him even though unconscious outside a Gold Coast karaoke bar.
Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Procter stated two guys approached the student and his companion outside the bar in Southport Mall early on Wednesday morning.
1 man distracted the pair and the other kicked one of the students in the head.
“You will see by the footage it is very a sickening blow, it is quite an unsavoury matter and we’d like to get it dealt with as soon as we could,” Detective Procter said.
“The victim was rendered unconscious right away. The other victim was chased off by the two offenders.
“The two offenders returned to the Korean national exactly where they proceeded to go by way of his pockets and steal his phone.
“If people could view the footage closely, if anybody must recognise these folks if they could speak to Crime Stoppers instantly.”
The injured student was treated at the Gold Coast University Hospital but was not admitted.
A 26-year-old man from Labrador handed himself in and was charged with armed robbery and assault occasioning bodily harm, Queensland Police said in a statement.
He is due to appear before the Southport Magistrates Court nowadays.
