SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A dress shop and two restaurants were held up overnight in the South Bay and Mid-City areas of San Diego, police said today.

Around 9 p.m. Saturday, two men with a handgun demanded cash from employees at Hot Topic, 4141 Camino de la Plaza in San Ysidro, San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.

They took money and escaped on foot, and no one was hurt, according to Stafford.

Just after 11 p.m. Saturday, a gunman displayed a knife to the clerk at a Starbucks at 950 Dennery Road in Ocean View Hills, the officer said.

He said the robber escaped with cash and no one was hurt.

Just after midnight Sunday, two men armed with a handgun robbed a taco shop at 3800 Euclid Ave., Stafford said.

Earlier, two men who had a handgun tried but failed to hold up the GreekCorner restaurant at 5841 El Cajon Blvd. in the College Area, Stafford said.

The men went into the restaurant just after 9 p.m. Saturday, but took off when an employee yelled from the back of the building, according to Stafford.
