Police are seeking information about an attempted armed robbery at Moss Vale.

Just after 11:30 last night, a 31 year old woman was walking along Railway Street when she was approached by two men.

One of the them allegedly threatened her with what’s believed to be a pocket knife.

They then demanded her wallet and mobile phone, before fleeing the scene empty-handed.

The pair were last seen running along Railway Street towards Spring Street.

Fortunately the woman wasn't injured.

Officers from the Hume Police District rushed to the scene and have now started an investigation.

Anyone with any information about the two men is being asked to phone Southern Highlands Police or Crimestoppers.
