A man and woman are set to front Wollongong Local Court today, charged with assaulting a man over the weekend.
A 24-year-old man was walking along a railway overpass near Crown Street about 8pm on Sunday when he was approached by a 25-year-old man and 28-year-old woman.
Police claim the older man demanded money, before punching the other man in the face, causing him to fall to the ground.
It is alleged the assailant then continued to assault the man, before the pair ran away with money and a necklace.
The injured man returned home, where a friend contacted emergency services.
He was treated by paramedics and taken to Wollongong Hospital with facial injuries.
Police from Wollongong Local Area Command also attended and launched an investigation.
A man and woman attended Wollongong Police Station yesterday afternoon where they were arrested and charged with robbery in company causing grievous bodily harm.
They were refused bail to appear before Wollongong Local Court today.
