SAN DIEGO (CNS) - San Diego police on Wednesday are investigating three separate robberies that took place throughout the city in a two-hour span.
About 8:40 p.m. Tuesday, an armed robbery at Z and Z Market in Normal Heights and another robbery at Chase Bank in Mira Mesa were reported, according to San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros.
During the market robbery, two men wearing gray rags over their faces entered the Monroe Avenue business and demanded cash, Delimitros said, adding that one also pistol-whipped a clerk before both suspects fled on foot.
In Mira Mesa, a female courier was robbed of a bank bag by three men who fled in a black, four-door sedan, Delimitros said.
The third robbery of the night took place about 10:45 p.m. in the Gaslamp District. According to Delimitros, a roughly 5-foot-8-inch tall man believed to be in his 40s robbed a female employee as she was counting money at Toscana Restaurant on Fifth Avenue.
