Detectives have charged a man following the alleged armed robbery of a Meridan Plains service station and another attempted armed robbery in Caloundra over the weekend.

It is alleged that shortly before 8pm on October 20 a man entered a service station on Parklands Boulevard and produced a weapon similar to a taser before demanding a female staff member hand over cash from the till.

The staff member compiled with the man's demands before he allegedly stole a wallet from one of two customers inside at the time.

He then fled the business on foot.

It is further alleged that at about 12.10am on October 21, a business owner was confronted by a man holding a weapon similar to a taser as he left work on Mayes Avenue.

The man then allegedly assaulted the victim, striking him on the head, and demanded he hand over cash, before the victim fled the scene.

No property was taken during the alleged incident.

Ongoing investigations resulted in Sunshine Coast police today arresting a 31-year-old Tanawha man.

He has been charged with two counts each of armed robbery and attempted armed robbery and is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court tomorrow (October 22).
