Thieves take cash and lottery tickets from La Mesa convenience store

Posted: Updated:

LA MESA (CNS) - A La Mesa convenience store clerk was pistol-whipped during a robbery in which thieves took cash and lottery tickets early Tuesday, police said.

Two gunmen entered the 7-Eleven at 5650 Baltimore Drive about 2:30 a.m. and demanded that the clerk on duty open the store's cash register, according to La Mesa police.

When the clerk didn't move fast enough, one of the robbers used his handgun to hit him in the face, causing minor injuries, police said.

One of the gunman then took cash, while the other stole lottery tickets, police said. Both fled on foot.

Police described the gunmen as black males in their early 20s, between 6 feet and 6 feet 2, with medium builds. They wore black hooded sweatshirts with the hoods pulled over their faces, according to police. One of the sweatshirts had "San Diego" in white letters on the front.
