LA MESA (CNS) - La Mesa police Tuesday searched for a man who stole a cell phone at gunpoint from another man at the 70th Street Trolley Station.
The armed robbery at 7255 Alvarado Road occurred about 7:30 p.m. Monday, according to La Mesa police.
The robber approached the victim as he stood on the trolley platform and asked for money, police said. The victim refused and the suspect pulled out a black handgun and took the victim's cell phone before running away eastbound along the trolley tracks.
Police described the gunman as black, clean-shaven, between 21-25 years-old, with dark hair and dark eyes. He was last seen wearing a black long-sleeved hoodie with a white logo and black sweat pants, police said.
