Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Two armed men, wearing dark clothing head to toe, storm into a Rancho Penasquitos taco shop and order the cashier to hand over the money.

Police say the robbery happened around 1:00 a.m. Wednesday at the MXN Taco Shop in the 12,800 block of Rancho Penasquitos Boulevard.

According to authorities, the cashier was robbed at gunpoint with a 9mm semi-automatic. The men each wore black ski masks and gloves.

Only one customer was in the taco shop at the time. The male suspects were able to take off through the back door heading eastbound with an undisclosed amount of cash. No injuries were reported.

A similar robbery was reported early Tuesday, when two men armed with handguns robbed Roberto's Taco Shop at 4770 Voltaire Street in Ocean Beach around 4 a.m. Police said those men may have fled in a black sedan, possibly a Buick of Lincoln.
