SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Convenience stores in San Ysidro and Kearny Mesa were robbed early Saturday, and a third robbery attempt was made at another store, a police officer said.
A would-be robber who acted like he had a gun in his waistband demanded cash from a clerk at the 7-Eleven store at 4080 Convoy St. about 12:30 a.m. But the clerk refused the demand, and the would-be robber left empty-handed, San Diego police Officer David Stafford said.
Police described that suspect as white or Hispanic, between 20 and 25, about 5 feet 11 and 180 pounds. He wore a black hooded sweatshirt and a green shirt.
A gun-wielding robber struck a 7-Eleven store at 644 East San Ysidro Blvd. shortly after 1 a.m., Stafford said. The suspect demanded cash from a clerk then ran westbound from the scene with an undisclosed amount, according to the officer.
Police described that suspect as Hispanic, about 30, and around 5 feet 6 with a medium build. He was wearing a blue shirt, blue pants and a blue cap.
About a half-hour later, a 76 gas station at 3860 Kearny Mesa Road was robbed of cash and cigarettes, Stafford said.
That robber was described as Hispanic, 19 to 20 years old, about 6 feet tall and thin. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and jeans.
Police did not believe any of the incidents were related.
