Two men have been arrested following a robbery in Kingscliff on Monday.

Just after 11am, two staff from the Kingscliff Beach Hotel were walking with the weekend takings along Marine Parade to the bank when they were attacked

Hotel staff were able to restrain one of the offenders while the other ran off with the weekend takings. The first man returned a short time later brandishing a knife. He was chased by an off-duty Queensland police officer who tackled and retained him until local police arrived.

Kingscliff Police arrested a 27-year-old from Tweed Heads and a 29-year-old from Toowoomba.

The pair were charged with aggravated robbery and appeared in Tweed Heads Local Court yesterday.
