Four robbers entered the Challenge service station on Naylor St at about 9.50pm and assaulted the worker before fleeing with cigarettes and money in a stolen silver car.
The store worker has a minor injury.

The group drove the car east along Cambridge Rd and it was later found dumped on Morrinsville Rd.
