SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – Police are searching for two suspects who stormed two different convenience stores in less than an hour early Monday morning.
Authorities said one suspect had a handgun and the other had a machete.
The first attempted robbery happened at a 7-Eleven at 30th Street and Fern Street in South Park just before 3:00 a.m.
Investigators said two Hispanic males in dark clothing approached a clerk demanding cash, but fled empty-handed when the clerk ran off, police said.
