A pregnant woman has been robbed at knife-point on a popular West Auckland walk.

Police said the victim, aged in her thirties, was walking the Waitakere Falls at 10.45am.

The men, who had covered their faces, sprung from the bush and confronted the woman, about 5 minutes from the Piha Rd carpark.

One of the men wielded a knife and demanded money, police said. 

The victim had no cash but the offenders took the woman’s necklace, rings, bracelet and watch, police said.

After the two men fled, the victim ran to the carpark and waved down a passing police car.

A Police Eagle helicopter and dog unit search failed to find the offenders.

The victim, who is 5-months pregnant, was taken to hospital for a check-up.

She was shaken, but otherwise unharmed, police said.

Police are calling for the public's help to find the offenders.

One of the men was a Caucasian, aged in his late twenties, of thin build and about 165cm tall. 

He was wearing a baggy red hoody, faded low-cut jeans and possibly brown sandshoes.

The second male offender was Maori or Pacific Islander, also aged in his late twenties.

He was of solid build and wearing wearing a black hoody, dark jeans with rips in the legs and dark-coloured sandshoes.

Police would like to speak with anyone who was in the Piha Rd and  Upper Nihotupo Reservoir area at the time who saw anyone fitting the description or suspicious behaviour.
