Renewed appeal for information after men threatened with firearm – Central Coast

Police are reappealing for public information following an armed robbery on the state’s Central Coast last month.

About 2am on Saturday 4 December 2021, three men were fishing at the North Entrance Boat ramp, off Wilfred Barrett Drive, when they observed a white sedan halt nearby before rapidly reversing and taking off at speed toward The Entrance Bridge.

A short time later, three men – armed with a firearm, knife and scissors – attended the location, and threatened the men.

The group stole personal items and cash before fleeing the area on foot.

Detectives from Tuggerah Lakes Police District were notified a short time later with detectives forming Strike Force Wolger to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.

The fishermen were not physically injured during the incident.

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.

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