SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A masked man who robbed a Mission Valley motel Friday afternoon offered polite - if possibly sarcastic - parting words before fleeing with his loot, according to San Diego police.
The bandit, who was wearing a black ski mask and gloves, demanded cash from a clerk at the business in the 2400 block of Hotel Circle North shortly before 4 p.m., SDPD Detective Gary Hassen said.
After the victim took an undisclosed amount of money out of a register and handed it over, the thief hurried out of the motel, but not before calling out, "Thank you, and God bless you," according to Hassen.
The robber fled the area in a silver BMW convertible.
