Wollongong detectives canvassed the area, arresting the man a short time later at a unit on Kembla Street.
He was taken to Wollongong Police Station and charged with robbery while armed with offensive weapon and intimidation.
He was remanded in custody without bail overnight to face Wollongong Local Court today.
