Two people are due to face court today (Tuesday 27 July, 2021) accused of assaulting and robbing a man at the Warabrook Railway Station on Monday night.
Police say a 25-year-old man was riding his bicycle near the station just after 7.00pm when he was stopped by 3 people who assaulted him before making off with his bike and other belongings.
He was taken to the Mater Hospital for treatment.
A short time later, police arrested a 17-year-old girl at Jesmond and a 22-year-old man at Waratah West.
They’ve been refused bail to face court today charged with robbery in company.
Police are yet to speak to the 3rd alleged offender.
The pushbike has been recovered.
