A man has been charged after breaking a student's jaw in an unprovoked attack in central Wellington.

A 19-year-old man has been charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm in an assault outside Readings Cinema on Courtenay Place in November last year.

The victim was walking with a friend when he was knocked to the ground and assaulted further.

He required surgery and the installation of a metal plate to repair the damage to his jaw.

The man who has been charged was remanded in custody and appeared in the Wellington District Court on Tuesday.
