SAN DIEGO — A man in a gorilla mask held up a Walgreens Pharmacy store in the Chollas View neighborhood, but was arrested shortly afterward.
The masked man passed a demand note to an employee at the store on Euclid Avenue near Guymon Street and fled with an undisclosed amount around 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, San Diego police Officer Dino Delimitros said.
Officers responding to the robbery spotted the 32-year-old suspect nearby and detained him. He was arrested after being identified by a witness and the loss was recovered, Delimitros said.
The suspect’s name was not immediately available.
