An armed robbery at an Alix gas station left the store employee with minor injuries.

A lone vehicle occupant gained access to the inside of the gas station by backing his vehicle onto the property. Bashaw RCMP responded to the 911 call on Sunday around 10:50 p.m.

The vehicle was seized by the RCMP.

The store clerk was treated on scene by EMS and declined further medical treatment.
