SAN DIEGO - An armed man took an unknown number of cellphones from a Verizon store in the Mira Mesa community of San Diego, a police officer said Sunday.

The suspect walked up to the Verizon store, 8118 Mira Mesa Blvd., and knocked on the door at 7:52 p.m. Saturday, said Officer Robert Heims of the San Diego Police Department.

The employee, who didn't want to be identified, opened the door an says the suspect then pulled out a gun from his pocket and pointed it at the employee, ordering him to go to the safe.

"I turn around and I saw he has a gun exposed and I was like 'there’s no one here'. He said 'ok take me to the back and show me where the phones are at.'”

The suspect then pulled out a duffle bag and made the employee fill it with cell phones. The suspect fled in an unknown direction, he said.

"As soon as I saw the gun I was like is this really happening?! I looked, I saw a bullet in the chamber. It was a revolver so I was like oh this is real."

The employee described the suspect as a black male, about 20 to 25 years old, unshaven with a goatee. He was last seen wearing a gray hoodie and blue jeans, he said.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery was asked to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
