Police release surveillance video of gas station robbery

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Dramatic surveillance video of an armed robbery at a gas station in North Park on Christmas Eve has been released.

It happened just before 3:00 a.m. on Monday at the USA Gas Station along University Avenue.

San Diego police just released the video, which shows the robber coming up to the register, looking like a regular customer, when all of a sudden he pulls out a small revolver and demands cash from the clerk.

A struggle over the gun follows and the robber hits the clerk in the face with the weapon. He then reaches over the counter and takes off with the register.

If you think you recognize the suspect, you're asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477. You could be eligible for a reward, and you can remain anonymous.
