Sunshine Coast detectives are investigating two violent robberies at homes in Landsborough and Mudjimba during the last ten days.
Around 2.30pm on Monday, August 31, two men entered a residence on North Beach Place at Mudjimba before assaulting a 20-year-old male resident. The pair demanded to know the location of a safe before stealing a number of personal items.
It is believed the pair left the area in a grey Toyota RAV4 with a frangipani on the number plate.
One of the men is described as Caucasian, around 180cm tall with short hair. He also has a tattoo on his right cheek.
In a separate incident on Tuesday, September 8, two men attended a residence on Eumeralla Crescent at Landsborough and threatened a 77-year-old woman with a screwdriver.
One of the men continued to punch and kick the woman while the other searched the house for a safe.
The two men, who disguised themselves with surgical masks and scarves, were driving a black Holden Astra with distinctive mag wheels.
Police believe the two robberies may be linked to removalist companies in the area as the men demanded specific items at each property.
Detectives are appealing to anyone with information on the men or vehicles involved to come forward.
