A Woodlynne gas station attendant was stabbed in the lower back in an afternoon robbery the day after Christmas.

The incident occurred around 1 p.m. Thursday at the Citgo Gas Station at the intersection of Mt. Ephraim and Ferry Avenues, according to authorities.

Eighteen-year-old attendant Rukman Sodi reportedly was stabbed in the lower back after refusing to turn over money to the alleged robber. Sodi was treated for his injuries at Cooper Medical Center, and was released.

Police are on the lookout for a medium-build white man in his early twenties, about five-feet-eight-inches tall. The suspect was last seen wearing an orange jacket, black pants and a white ski mask, and reportedly fled in a grey Mazda 8 with tinted windows.

Anyone with information on the identity of the alleged robber or his vehicle should contact Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Michelle Chambers at (609) 743-0654 or Woodlynne Police at (856) 962-8300 x214

Gas stations continue to be popular robbery targets in South Jersey. 

In December 2012, a 44-year-old Blackwood man and his juvenile accomplice were charged in a string of incidents in Camden and Gloucester counties.

In the months prior, gas station robbers struck in Brooklawn, Collingswood and Maple Shade, as well as in West Deptford, where the Lukoil gas station on Crown Point Road and Red Bank Avenue was robbed by suspects who reportedly fled in a silver Dodge Stratus.

A Woodbury man was killed in a robbery-homicide at a Route 45 gas station in August, and in September, police began investigating an attempted robbery at the Route 130 Gulf gas station that later led to the arrests of three Mount Laurel men who allegedly hit service stations in Cherry Hill, Collingswood, Runnemede, Bellmawr, Berlin and Somerdale.
