Robbery offences, Landsborough & Mudjimba
Police are investigating a potential link between two Sunshine Coast robberies.
On Tuesday (September 8), a 77-year-old woman was viciously attacked inside her home in Landsborough with two men demanding access to a safe.
A similar robbery occurred at Mudjimba on August 30, where a 20-year-old was assaulted as the offenders again demanded access to a safe.
Detective Senior Sergeant Darren Edwards said both victims had used removalists prior to the robberies.
"Some person has been able to get information to be able to go there and ask for a safe--that's more than coincidental," he said.
Sgt Edwards said both removal companies have been co-operative in the police investigation.
Anyone with information is urged to come forward.
