SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A woman wearing glasses and a black hooded sweatshirt wielding a knife robbed a Gaslamp music store Saturday and was still on the loose, police said.
The woman was carrying stolen merchandise out of the Sam Goody's at the intersection of 5th Avenue and E Street just before 11:30 a.m., said San Diego Police Officer Frank Cali.
When she was stopped by employees, she produced a black folding knife and then ran out of the store and east on E Street, Cali said.
It was not immediately known whether she took the stolen goods with her, he said.
The woman was described as white, thin, with brown hair in a bun and was wearing glasses, a black hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and a black shoulder purse, Cali said.
