Unanderra - man robbed, arrest made in Mittagong


A man has been charged following an investigation into a robbery at Unanderra.

About midnight on Thursday April 30, two men aged 26 and 31, went to a work-site on Resolution Drive, Unanderra, and drank with a 29-year-old man who was staying at the site.
Following an argument, the 26-year-old man allegedly held down the 29-year-old man, while the 31-year-old man assaulted him, the 31-year-old man lost consciousness and his wallet was stolen. The man was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics for multiple facial fractures before being taken to Wollongong Hospital.

Following extensive inquiries, about 4pm yesterday, a 31-year-old man was arrested at Mittagong Train Station and taken to Southern Highlands Police Station, where he was charged with robbery in company. The man was refused bail and is due to face Wollongong Local Court today.
