SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A suspect remained at large Friday after an armed robbery in Chula Vista that climaxed with the arrests of his two accomplices, police said.
The robbery took place about 5 p.m. Thursday at the Footaction USA store in the Chula Vista Mall on Broadway and H Street, Chula Vista Police Lt. Daniel Hardman said.
Two males entered the store, one with a handgun, and forced employees to the back, where they demanded cash and shoes, Hardman said. He said they were agitated, causing employees to be frightened, he said.
The robbers then tried to slip out the back door but could not immediately get out, according to Hardman. In the confusion, one employee ran out unseen and contacted mall security officers, who called 911, he said.
Arriving officers saw the two men running from the south parking lot onto Fifth Avenue, then splitting off as they entered a residential area, Hardman said.
One robber was tracked down to the roof of a nearby house and arrested, Hardman said. Police used canine units and a helicopter to search for the other robber but were unable to locate him.
However, the getaway driver was arrested and all the stolen property was recovered, police said.
Police said the suspect being sought is black, 5 feet 11, 180 pounds and was clad in black.
