    It can be attempted. Per Sneak Attack under Stealth <italics added>, "Sneaking up close enough to make a melee attack always requires an opposed Stealth roll versus the target’s Notice, whether the guard is actively looking for trouble or not."

    So, it doesn't matter if the target is "actively looking for trouble" (like in combat), but it always requires an opposed Stealth vs. Notice roll to successfully pull off, and circumstantial penalties could certainly apply (as noted in the description of the skill).

    Hope that helps.
