SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A man who allegedly robbed a bank in a supermarket near Spring Canyon Park Tuesday was arrested behind a Kearny Mesa strip club about an hour later.
The holdup at a Wells Fargo office in the Vons store on Scripps Poway Parkway in Miramar Ranch North occurred about 10:40 a.m., San Diego police said.
Witnesses described seeing the tall, muscular and bearded bandit fleeing in a small red car, possibly a Volkswagen GTI, SDPD public-affairs Officer Jim Johnson said.
Shortly before 11 a.m., police spotted a vehicle matching the description behind Cheetahs Gentlemen's Club in the 8100 block of Clairemont Mesa Boulevard. They detained a man sitting in the car and brought in a bank employee who identified him as the robber, Johnson said.
The suspect was taken to SDPD headquarters for questioning. His name was unavailable pending booking.
Nikki Benedict was stabbed to death 47 years ago in Poway. Now almost 50 years later, there is a new lead.
The wife of a San Diego police officer accused of domestic violence is standing by her husband and thinks SDPD should do the same.
