When the rush-hour crowd died down, one of the clerks walked into the back. The other clerk was next to the register. The suspect approached him and produced a demand note. He exposed the butt of a small handgun and also a hunting knife with a black handle and a silver blade.
The other clerk came out from the back and opened the register. The suspect took an unknown amount of money. The suspect then left in a westerly direction.
The suspect was described as a black male adult, mid 50s, 5-feet 10-inches tall, about 160 pounds. He had buzz cut hair, black stubble with grey in it, grey ball cap, black zip up sweatshirt with a grey interior hoodie, and black pants. San Diego Police Robbery Detectives are investigating.
