LA MESA (CNS) - La Mesa police Monday were on the lookout for a young man who forced employees into a closet while robbing a frozen yogurt shop at gunpoint.
The man robbed Golden Spoon Yogurt at 5640 Lake Murray Blvd. about 9:25 p.m. Sunday, according to police.
He demanded money from two employees, ordering them to open a cash register and safe, police said.
Once he received the money, the man had the employees go into a closet and blocked the closet door with chairs before fleeing the business, police said, adding that neither employee was hurt.
Police described the gunman as black, 18-20 years old, about 5-feet-10 to 6-feet tall and 170-180 pounds.
He wore a dark-colored bandana over the lower half of his face, a black jacket with a hood and dark pants, police said.
