DETECTIVES investigating the robberies of a pizza delivery driver and a fast food restaurant in Woonona in recent months have arrested and charged a man.
A 19-year-old man delivered a pizza to a home on Hopetoun Street about 9.40pm on Sunday May 26 when he was confronted and assaulted by three men before they fled with his money and pizza.
In the second incident, about 1.30am on Monday July 22, a man entered a fast food restaurant on Princes Highway, Woonona, with his face concealed.
The man confronted a 23-year-old employee and threatened her, telling her he was armed with a weapon.
A number of employees were then ordered to go into the back office before the man stole cash from the safe.
Following these inquiries, a 25-year-old man was arrested about 10.45am yesterday (Thursday August 22) at Wollongong.
The man was taken to Wollongong Police Station where he was later charged with aggravated robbery and robbery. He’s been bail refused and will appear at Wollongong Local Court today (Friday August 23).
