The two men allegedly stole a wallet and cash before fleeing the scene.
The incident was reported to officers at Oxley Police District and an investigation was commenced.
Officers attended a home on Flemming Crescent yesterday where they arrested an 18-year-old man allegedly found hiding under a bed.
A search of the man allegedly located a sum of cash – believed to be stolen.
He was taken to Tamworth Police Station where he was charged with aggravated break and enter and commit serious indictable offence.
He was refused bail and will appear in Tamworth Local Court today.
Meanwhile officers continue their inquiries into the robbery of an 81-year-old man in a motorhome on the corner of Bridge Street and Out Street about 7.20pm on Sunday.
Investigators have been told a male entered the passenger door of the motorhome and demanded the man’s wallet, while kicking him and threatening him with a knife.
The man opened the driver-side door and fell out of his seat, and the unknown man ran off in a southerly direction along Out Street.
