SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man robbed a downtown convenience store Monday using a lighter that looks like a handgun and was arrested a short time later, police said.

The thief robbed the 7-Eleven at 2nd Avenue and Broadway just after 5:10 a.m. with what appeared to be a gun, said San Diego police Lt. Andra Brown.

He fled and was taken into custody less than 10 minutes later.

Officers determined the "weapon" was actually a lighter, police said.
