LA MESA (CNS) - A 46-year-old San Diego man was arrested after he allegedly tried to rob a gas station in La Mesa early Thursday, police said.
Shortly before 12:30 a.m., Byron Lydell Brown allegedly told a clerk at the Shell gas station at 5151 70th St. that he had a knife in his pocket and would stab the clerk in the chest if he did not hand over the money in the store's register, according to La Mesa police.
The clerk stalled the would-be thief while activating the store's robbery alarm, police said, noting that the suspect fled without any money when customers entered the store.
Officers located Brown and a knife a short time later, near the intersection of 70th Street and Alvarado Road, police said.
