Footage of the man wanted over the terrifying assault of a woman at Broadbeach on Monday night has been released by police.
A 40-year-old was outside a Surf Parade unit complex with a man she had arranged to meet around 7pm when he assaulted her, knocking her briefly unconscious, before attempting to restrain her.
She thankfully regained consciousness, breaking free from his grip before running to the nearby police station for help.
The man was last seen running south on the Gold Coast Highway after stealing the woman’s mobile phone.
Detectives are pleading with the public to view the CCTV footage to hopefully recognise him.
He is described as aged in his late 20s to early 30s, 170cm tall, solid build, clean shaven, blonde hair, blue or green eyes and was wearing black track pants, light grey hoodie, black cap and no footwear.
