Boys charged in violent Gold Coast robbery

Two teenage boys have been charged after a woman was dragged from her car and assaulted during a robbery on the Gold Coast.

The 41-year-old woman was sitting in her parked car in Robina on Friday evening when her driver's side door was opened and the boys allegedly dragged her out and began punching her.

The pair then allegedly stole her phone and ran off.

They were chased down by members of the public who brought them back to the scene to wait for police.

The boys, aged 15 and 16, were both charged with robbery and will face court at a later date.
