LATEST: POLICE are continuing the hunt for at least two men who were involved in an armed raid at a service station this week.

Detectives on Friday released still images taken from closed circuit television footage of the robbery, in which two masked men armed themselves with a knife and baseball bat.

The men hid behind a car outside the Oz Fuels service station on the Cunningham Highway at Yamanto about 9.25pm Wednesday, waiting for an employee to walk outside before they stormed in through the sliding front doors.

When the employee walked back inside he was shoved up against the wall behind the cash register and threatened by one of the men.

The victim, a man aged in his mid-20s, then complied with the robbers' demands and opened a cash register.

Police said the crooks left with a sum of cash - running west along the Cunningham Highway to a waiting vehicle.

Detectives were investigating whether or not a third person may have remained in the vehicle during the robbery.

Police did not provide a description of the getaway car.

The shop employee was not physically injured during the robbery, but was left badly shaken.

Both males were described as Caucasian, wearing black hooded jumpers and bandanas covering their faces.

One of the men was about 175cm-180cm tall with a solid build, and the other was described as shorter in stature with a thin build and wearing a red baseball cap.

One of the men was wearing thongs, and the other sandals. Police also noticed one of the robbers was wearing gloves with the fingers cut out.

Anyone with information that could assist police should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800333000.
