Convenience store robbed twice in a month
SAN DIEGO — An Arco gas station employee in Otay Mesa was robbed at gunpoint early Tuesday.
The suspect demanded money from an employee at the station’s am/pm convenience store at the corner of Del Sol and Picador boulevards around 1:15 a.m. and fled after receiving an undisclosed amount, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.
A detailed description of the suspect was not immediately available, but police said he was Hispanic, about 30 and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and gray pants.
This was the second robbery at the convenience store in a month. On January 4, a gunman walked behind the counter and held a pistol to an employee’s head.
The victim placed cash in a black plastic bag and handed it over to the robber, who then fled.
