The 48-year-old Robina man was arrested about 9am on Sunday, after police executed a search warrant on a Coolabah Cres home.

The search followed an investigation into the alleged assault of a 29-year-old man at a Broadbeach shopping centre on May 4.

Police confirmed the arrested man was a member of the notorious Bandidos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.

He was charged with one count each of assault occasioning bodily harm (whilst pretending to be armed) and wilful damage in relation to the alleged assault.

He was also charged with unlawful possession of a dangerous drug (methylamphetamine) and possession of a drug utensil following today’s search.

He is due to appear in the Southport Magistrate’s Court on Monday.
