An armed couple who robbed a university student were caught out by a quickly thought-out plan.

The 18-year-old mathematics and science student had just finished an exam at the University of Newcastle in New South Wales about 8pm on May 31, 2018 when he was approached by Caitlin Smith, 27, and her fiancee Scott Burrell, 33.

Burrell was armed with a knife and told the student to hand over his phone and wallet, the Newcastle Herald reported.
