ACT Policing is appealing to the public for information as they try to identify two men who attempted to rob a woman in Glebe Park nearly two weeks ago.

Around 7:45 pm on Monday the 12th of March, a woman was approached by two men in Glebe Park.

One of the men requested money and after the woman refused, the second man produced a 40cm knife and demanded the woman hand over her mobile phone.

One of the men attempted to grab the woman’s phone, but the woman pulled it from his grip, then took photos of the men as they walked away.

Anyone who may have any information or CCTV footage that could assist police is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.

Police advise that if you are a victim of an armed robbery you should consider your safety at all times, stay calm and obey the offender’s instructions. All armed offenders must be treated as dangerous as some may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol and may react in an unpredictable way.
