SAN DIEGO -- Police were Wednesday asking the public for help in identifying a suspect in an October armed robbery at an Emerald Hills gas station.

Around 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 2, a woman allegedly ran inside the Valero station on Euclid Avenue just south of state Route 94 and leveled a gun at the clerk, demanding money from the register according to a news release from San Diego County Crime Stoppers. The clerk complied.
