Australia Nurse Abducted,Robbed,Forced Into Car Boot outside Gold Coast Hospital by katty : December 01, 2017, 09:44:53 AM
A MANHUNT is underway after a male nurse was abducted from his workplace by armed robbers who forced him into the boot of his car and made him withdraw cash from an ATM.

The 25-year-old nurse was on a break at 3.30am outside a Gold Coast hospital when a group of men in balaclavas, armed with knives and a handgun, forced him into the boot.



He was then driven from the Pindara Private Hospital to an ATM in Parkwood and made to withdraw money, before he was put back in the boot. At around 4.20am, the vehicle crashed into a fence at Kurrambee Avenue in Ashmore and the offenders fled the vehicle.

The nurse was found in the boot of the car by local residents and taken to Gold Coast University Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.



The men then fled in another car, but crashed a few streets away in Ashmore Road, where the car rolled over. Around 4.45am, police were called to the scene and found knives in the vehicle.

A male was located a short distance from this vehicle and is assisting police with their investigations into the incidents.

A major manhunt in under way for three other men, who fled the scene. The abduction is believed to have been be a random incident.

A neighbour told 7 News she found the nurse walking through her fence and initially thought he was a drunk driver. “I came out to render assistance and then realised that he was really badly hurt,” she said. “He said that he had been robbed at gunpoint by four men, one of them had a gun, one of them had knives and he had knife wounds all down his arms.

“He was just in shock, he could not even tell me his name.”
