Senior Sergeant Craig Dinnissen said the women were sitting inside a car parked near Prospect Park in North Dunedin at 10.30pm on Sunday when the man revealed what looked like a screw driver or a knife.
The women immediately drove off, while the man followed on foot for a length of time.
Police searched for the man but could not locate him.
