A 21-year-old Orange man who was walking along Burrendong Way at 2.20am on Saturday was approached by a group of unknown males and threatened with a knife.
Central West Police District Chief Inspector Dave Harvey said one of the men asked for property from the victim and held a knife against his chest.
No property was gained by the four males and the victim walked away from the scene and reported it to police.
Orange detectives are investigating the matter and are calling for anyone with information to come forward.
Police are also investigating another matter, where a Holden ute was stolen from an address in Hill Street between 11.30pm on Friday and 9.45am on Saturday.
At the time of writing, the vehicle was still outstanding and police are seeking any information.
In another matter, police are investigating after a resident was alerted by drive-way sensors to five offenders who were seen milling around the victim’s vehicle at 1am on Saturday.
Chief Inspector Harvey said five people approached the vehicle and attempted to open the doors unsuccessfully.
He said the five people ran off and police attended.
