Police are renewing an appeal for public assistance following an attempted armed robbery with a firearm on the state’s Central Coast last month.

About 2.10am on Saturday 4 December 2021, three men approached a vehicle at Lynch Crescent, The Entrance North.

One man pointed a firearm at the driver, who drove from the scene.

A short time later, three men – two armed with a knife and scissors – approached two fishermen at The Entrance North boat ramp, Central Coast Highway.

The fishermen were threatened before the three men attempted to steal their vehicle.

Soon after, the men approached a third fisherman nearby and threatened him with a firearm.

The group then left the scene on foot and police were notified. The fishermen were not physically injured.

Detectives from Tuggerah Lakes Police District established Strike Force Wolger to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incidents.

As inquires continue, police would like to speak with three men who may be able to assist with ongoing investigations.

All three men are described as being aged in their early 20s, about 170cm-180cm tall, with an olive complexion and speaking with an accent.

Police are also seeking any dashcam vision from the area at the time of the incidents.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence. The public is reminded not to report information via NSW Police social media pages.
