LA MESA (CNS) - Police were on the lookout Tuesday for a gunman who robbed a Motel 6 in La Mesa.
The gunman entered the motel at 7621 Alvarado Road shortly after 6:30 p.m. Monday and inquired about a room, according to La Mesa police. He then pulled out a black pistol, pointed it at the clerk and demanded cash.
Police said a manager in another room overheard what was going on and called 911. But before police arrived, the gunman fled with an undetermined amount of cash, running away westbound in the 7600 block of Alvarado Road.
The robber was described as black, 30-35 years old, about 6 feet, with an average build and short hair. He wore black pants, a black hooded sweatshirt underneath a green No. 34 Boston Celtics jersey, a hat with a brim and black sunglasses, police said. He had a bandage on the left side of his face near his eye, police said.
