A man has been charged in connection with an alleged armed robbery at Milton.

Around 12:30 on Saturday morning, two men entered a service station, with one of them producing a hunting knife and demanding cash, cigarette lighters and goods.

The two offenders then fled in an unregistered scooter, with a Police pursuit terminated for safety reasons.

The chase then continued through Milton with the pair's scooter eventually becoming stuck in gravel at the Ulladulla Skate Park.

A 20 year old man was arrested in nearby bushland and charged with armed robbery in company.

Police are still on the hunt for the second man.

He's described as being approximately 180cm with a medium build and was wearing a grey hooded jumper and dark pants at the time of the alleged incident.

Police are also investigating a second armed robbery near Bomaderry Creek.

Between 3 and 4am yesterday, a man was sleeping behind the cricket oval on Bolong Road, when he was woken by two unknown men.

He was allegedly struck in the head by one of them and knocked unconscious.

The two men are described as being of Aboriginal appearance, aged 18 to 20 and were both wearing dark clothing and hooded tops.
