Police are currently investigating the wounding of a female employee at a Robina department store this morning.
Preliminary investigations indicate that just before 9.30am, a woman approached the department store’s women’s-wear counter where a 32-year-old female employee was on the phone with a customer.
The employee advised the woman that she would not be long before turning away and continuing the conversation.
The woman has then removed a cutting implement from her handbag and moved around the counter where she cut the top of the employee’s right hand.
The woman then ran from the store, through a food court, before exiting the shopping centre.
The female employee was transported to Robina Hospital in a stable condition suffering a lacerated hand.
Police attended and patrolled the area. Investigations continue.
