SPRING VALLEY (CNS) - Sheriff's detectives Friday sought two men suspected of holding up a Spring Valley 7-Eleven and its customer, then robbing another convenience store in National City, authorities said.
The two suspects, who were wearing gloves and covered their faces, pulled pistols on the clerk and customers at the 7-Eleven on Grand Avenue near Jamacha Boulevard shortly after 10 p.m. Thursday, sheriff's Sgt. Carlos Medina said.
The robbers took an undisclosed amount from the cash registers and a customer's watch before fleeing southbound on Grand Avenue in a tan Lincoln Navigator, Medina said.
Suspects matching the Spring Valley robbers' description later held up another convenience store in National City, Medina said.
Early Friday, San Diego police officers found the Navigator abandoned in an alley off Gamma Street in the Southcrest neighborhood, and determined it had been stolen previously, Medina said.
Anyone with information on the robberies was asked to call the sheriff's department at (858) 565-5200, or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
