The waiting woman then allegedly pulled out a box cutter from her handbag and attacked the employee with the cutter’s blade, slicing her right hand.

The woman then ran from the store to a nearby food court before fleeing the shopping centre.

The female worker was rushed to Robina Hospital in a stable condition with laceration injuries to her hand.

Police are this afternoon conducting increased patrols in the Robina area with an investigation also ongoing.
