CLAIREMONT MESA (CNS) - A man armed with a handgun robbed a gas station Saturday on Clairemont Mesa as the clerk was making coffee, police said.

The suspect entered the Shell Gas Station, 6125 Balboa Ave., shortly after 5 a.m., according to San Diego police Officer Frank Cali.

The suspect pointed a handgun at the clerk, who was making coffee, Cali said. The suspect forced the clerk to the register and demanded money.

The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount and drove out to the west on Balboa Avenue in a blue vehicle, Cali said.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his 30s, who was about 5 feet-10 inches tall and weighed about 160 pounds, with a mustache or a goatee. He wore a light blue hooded sweatshirt with a white jacket and blue jeans.
