A City Heights discount store was robbed at gun point Friday afternoon, San Diego police officials said.
Just before 2 p.m., the masked thief entered the business on the 4600 block of University Avenue. He pulled out a pistol and demanded cash.
The store clerk said the bandit was wearing a black-and-white bandana covering the lower part of his face.
Officers said the clerk handed over an undisclosed amount of money and fled the area in an unknown direction.
The suspect was described as a man in his late teens to mid-20's, wearing sunglasses and a black- hooded sweatshirt, Officer Frank Cali said.
