A WOMAN tried to run away when she found two men wearing balaclavas inside the BP service station at Oman Ama yesterday morning, but they tackled her to the ground.

Police are investigating the robbery and assault, calling out for help from anyone with dash cam footage or other information related to the incident.

The men demanded cash and cigarettes and left the store a short time later in a silver commodore sedan.

The car was last seen heading south on the Inglewood-Stanthorpe Rd.

The woman suffered cuts and abrasions but did not require medical attention.

Police investigators are appealing for anyone who may have been driving in the area or has dash cam vision to contact police.
