Police allege the pair assaulted a 43 year old man.

A man was assaulted and robbed by a Glen Innes teenager and an adult near a caravan park last month, police allege.

The pair were both refused bail on charges of an assault police allege they committed on June 12 at about 11.50am outside a caravan park on the New England highway in Glen Innes. The pair have also been charged with stealing cash from his wallet.

The 43 year old victim received minor lacerations and bruising to his face, according to police.

A 38 year old man was arrested and charged with the robbery on Sunday. He was refused bail at Armidale Local Court and will reappear on July 17.

An 18 year old male teenager was arrested and charged by Glen Innes police on June 18. He was also refused bail at Armidale Local Court and will reappear on Monday September 9.

Glen Innes police arrested another teenager on Sunday, alleging the 17 year old male was drink driving.

Police say he was stopped on Ferguson street at 7.45am for a random breath test which returned a low range alcohol reading. Police subjected the p-plater to an immediate infringement, suspending his licence for three months on the spot.

It was one of the first times they've used the new on the spot suspension laws.

Police used the arrest to remind motorists that alcohol can impair your driving even the morning after a night of drinking.
