Police said he ran from the scene without any cash.

On the same night just minutes later, another woman was threatened with a knife on Houston Road in Kensington.

Police said the man ran from the scene when he was startled by a nearby resident.

He was seen running towards Anzac Parade in Kingsford before boarding the 3910X bus to Maroubra, where he threatened a fourth person with a knife and demanded money.

No injuries were reported during the incidents.

The man depicted in images released by police is described as being of Maori/Pacific Islander appearance, with black hair.

He is shown wearing a black hoodie and black tracksuit pants, with a blue mask.

Police are appealing for any witnesses or anyone who may have information about his identity to contact Eastern Beaches Police Area Command.
