Police are alleging 18-year-old Warwick man, Lloyd Michael Foran, who is believed to be an associate of outlaw motorcycle club, Bandidos, and 25-year-old Geoffrey Declan Foran, attempted to violently extort a 31-year-old Bundaberg man on Friday.

Both men appeared in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court this morning.
