Multiple robberies on Brisbane's north side

DETECTIVES are investigating two armed robberies at stores on Brisbane's north side last night.

Around 6.44pm two men entered a bottle shop on Nudgee Road at Banyo before one of the men threatened an employee with a screwdriver and made demands for money.

The male staff member complied and the pair left the scene with a sum of cash and a quantity of liquor.

The first man is described as being about 178cm tall with a dark complexion and was wearing a black hoodie and tracksuit pants.

The second man was wearing a grey hoodie and dark tracksuit pants.

In a separate incident, a man confronted a female staff member of a donut shop on Nudgee Road at Nudgee around 6.47pm.

He pushed a key against her torso and demanded she hand over cash from the till.

The woman complied with his demands and the man fled the food court area with a sum of cash.

He is described as being Caucasian in appearance, about 160cm tall with a slim build and dark hair.

No one was physically injured in either incident.
