Elderly man cruelly bashed and robbed by teens

Police are investigating the assault and robbery of an elderly man at North Nowra on Sunday.

The 76-year-old man was on his daily walk around 6.30pm when he noticed two teenagers on Pitt Street following him.

The man continued walking onto Page Avenue, where one of the teenagers assaulted him near the intersection of Goolagong Street.

The victim was punched to the ground and his head pushed into the concrete gutter.

The man’s head was then stomped on before one of the teenagers stole the man’s wallet and started running away.

When the elderly cried for help one of the teenagers returned and kicked him several times.

Police from Shoalhaven Local Area Command went to the scene and conducted a search for the offenders without success.

The victim was taken to Shoalhaven District Hospital where he is being treated for head injuries, including cuts and bruising.

The two males police are looking for are both Caucasian in appearance, between 160 to 170cm tall and both wearing hooded jumpers.
