An 18-year-old man has also been charged with robbery and fraud and will face court today.

The 24-year-old victim received minor injuries including cuts to his lip and forearm.

Detective Acting Inspector for the Capricornia District, Paul Elliot, said police were still looking for a 22-year-old Rockhampton man.

"If you participate in any kind of anti-social behaviour or you assault people, you will get caught, you will go to court, and you will suffer the consequences," he said.

Warcon did not apply for bail and was remanded in custody to appear on Thursday.
