Electromagnetic fields exert forces on charged particles thereby changing the energy and momentum of the charged particles. If you now think of the charged particles and the electromagnetic field as making up a single closed system, then it follows that the energy and momentum supplied to the charged particle must have come from the electromagnetic field.
