A JOURNALIST from the South Coast Register will attend a media conference this morning with Shoalhaven Police regarding the assault and robbery of an elderly man at North Nowra on Sunday night.
The 76-year-old man was on his daily walk at 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 victim cried for help one of the teenagers returned and kicked him several times.
Police from Shoalhaven Local Area Command have appealed for information to locate the alleged offenders.
A report from the media conference will be posted on our website.
