SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities searched Sunday for a masked man who robbed a clerk at knifepoint inside a Valero gas station in the Emerald Hills area, a San Diego police sergeant said.
The robbery suspect was armed with a kitchen knife as he walked into the Valero station at 1025 Euclid Ave. about 6:50 p.m. Saturday, SDPD Sgt. David Jennings said.
He robbed the clerk of an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene in a white Ford pickup truck with a camper shell, Jennings said.
The suspect was described as a black male in his 40s, with a medium build, Jennings said. He wore a red bandana over his face, a red hat and red and black striped shirt.
SDPD's Robbery Division was investigating the robbery, he said.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled Tuesday for a former San Diego police officer accused of groping four women during pat-down searches last year.
Chula Vista police will be looking for drivers talking or texting on cell phones Tuesday and through the end of the month as part of "Distracting Driving Awareness Month."
Police were on the lookout Tuesday for the man who fired a shot while robbing a Rolando-area smoke shop and his accomplice who emptied its cash register.
