Police are appealing for information after an armed robbery in Moil.

A man was walking with a woman near the local oval when he was allegedly approached by up to eight men at about 10.15pm last night.

The group allegedly threatened him with an edge weapon before stealing several of his belongings.

Officers say the group then fled towards Moil Place.

Detective Senior Sergeant Brett Cottier says the offenders are described as Indigenous males aged between 13 and 18, with one wearing a distinctive red jumper.

“Police are urging anyone with information, particularly personal CCTV in the area, to contact police on 131 444. Please quote reference 10076971,” he says.
