An armed robber is on the run after a violent hold up at Shoal Bay in broad daylight yesterday.
He threatened staff at the Shoal Bay Country Club Hotel with a knife at about 1:30pm, making off with cash from the till.
However moments later, he was approached outside the pub by a 24 year old male staff member.
The worker managed to get the money off the robber, but was stabbed in the face during a struggle.
The victim was taken to hospital for treatment on lacerations to his face.
Police are still looking for the suspect who fled down Tomaree Road.
He was wearing a silver motorcycle helmet and gloves.
