SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Two men robbed a San Diego convenience store as well as two patrons inside the business Saturday, taking an undisclosed amount of cash, a police sergeant said.
The robbery at a 7-Eleven at 430 Spruce St. occurred about 2:40 a.m., said San Diego police Sgt. Robin Rose.
One of the suspects walked in, asked for cigarettes before pulling out a handgun from this waistband. The suspect reached into the register and took an undisclosed amount of cash. The other suspect noticed a man and a woman hiding near the ATM machine. That suspect grabbed the woman's purse and took her cash, Rose said.
The suspects then fled on foot westbound on Spruce Street. One of the suspects was described as a black male in his mid-30s, about 5 foot 8-inches tall with a medium build wearing a black baseball cap, a white and blue shirt, and black pants. The second suspect was described as a 5-foot, 8-inch tall balding black male about 150 pounds wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt.
