SAN DIEGO - Police are searching for two men who took part in a series of muggings throughout San Diego this week.
There were eight armed muggings reported over the last few nights, according to San Diego police Lt. Todd Griffin. In each report, the armed robbers would threaten people walking by themselves on the street, show a weapon, then run off with their wallets and cell phones.
Four of the robberies happened Tuesday night. The first holdup was at 10 p.m. at Choctaw Drive and El Cajon Boulevard near San Diego State. Ten minutes later, a similar report happened about four miles away in the 5200 block of Landis Street, police said.
Another person was robbed just after midnight at Garnet Avenue and Fanuel Street in Pacific Beach. The fourth robbery took place in downtown on 11th Street at 12:55 a.m.
Griffin said since the men were wearing masks, it was tough for victims to get a description of their faces, although in each mugging the men were described as black men in their 20s wearing black and grey hoodies.
None of the victims were injured.
