A man will appear in Nowra Local Court on Thursday after allegedly assaulting another man and detaining a woman in Nowra on Wednesday afternoon.
About 12.30pm ( November 15) a 63-year-old man was in Smiths Lane, Nowra waiting to drop his laptop off for repair, when he was allegedly punched several times to the head by a younger man.
As the older man fell to the ground, the younger man allegedly fled with a wallet, laptop bag and mobile phone. He was last seen running towards Stewart Place.
Shortly after, the man allegedly jumped into the back passenger seat of a Subaru driven by a 59-year-old woman and directed her to drive to Nowra East, where he got out of the car.
