SAN YSIDRO (CNS) - A woman armed with a silver handgun robbed an Arco gas station north of San Ysidro today and was still on the loose, police said.
The woman entered the station on Palm Avenue, just east of Interstate 805, just after 6:45 a.m., displayed a gun and demanded cash from the station clerk, said San Diego Police Officer Frank Cali.
The clerk gave the woman some money and then she fled the scene in a black Ford Crown Victoria with a partial license plate of 5VL, Cali said.
The woman is described as Hispanic, 20 or 21 years old, 5 feet-3 inches tall with a thin build, Cali said. She was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and tight blue jeans.
