A WOMAN was injured when a masked man carrying a knife robbed the petrol station she was working at.

The suspect is described as slim and is said to have been wearing a yellow fluorescent cagoule-type top, a facemask and gloves.

Detectives urged anyone who saw what happened, or who has any information, to call police on 101, quoting incident number 167 of June 20.
