OCEANSIDE (CNS) - A man who may have robbed a gas station at gunpoint led Oceanside officers on a chase Saturday while at the wheel of a stolen car and managed to elude his pursuers, police said.
A man armed with a handgun entered the Mobil gas station at 1407 Mission Ave. just before 5 a.m. and demanded money, said Oceanside police Captain Leonard Mata. The robber, a black man in his 20s who wore a black beanie and sunglasses, fled with an undisclosed sum of money in a white vehicle headed east on Mission Avenue, he said.
Minutes later, officers patrolling the area tried to stop a white Nissan Altima that had been reported stolen by a San Diego resident, Mata said. The driver refuse to comply, triggering a chase that ended when he gave the officers the slip in the area of Mission Avenue and Frazee Road.
Police are trying to determine if the man in the stolen car was also the armed gas station robber, Mata said.
