Police investigating four convenience store robberies by suspect wearing 'Star Wars' mask

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CNS) - Four East County 7-Eleven stores may have been robbed by the same gun-wielding man wearing a "Sith" mask from the "Star Wars" movies, law enforcement officials said Monday.

A man in a red and black "Sith" mask and a black jacket or sweatshirt with a hood armed with a small semi-automatic handgun allegedly robbed a 7-Eleven at 355 Jamacha Road about 2:30 a.m. today, and fled on foot, El Cajon police Lt. Tim Henton said.

Similar suspect descriptions were given in two other early-morning robberies at convenience stores, one about 3 a.m. at 735 E. Bradley Ave. in an unincorporated area outside El Cajon, then about 10 minutes later at 10205 Lake Jennings Park Road in Lakeside, sheriff's Lt. Scott Amos said.

That suspect may also be linked to another armed robbery near El Cajon early Saturday, according to Amos.

In that robbery, a masked man pointed a black gun at a clerk at the store at 1498 Jamacha Road, grabbed money from the cash drawer and ran off, sheriff's officials said in a statement.
