LA MESA, Calif. - A gun-wielding man demanded cash at a liquor store in an unincorporated area near La Mesa on Saturday, but the would-be robber ran off empty-handed, sheriff's officials said.
The man brandished the firearm and demanded money from the owner of The Well Deck Liquor and Deli on Avocado Boulevard near Calle Verde Drive shortly after 11 a.m., according to sheriff's Lt. Jeff Maxin.
The owner did not immediately hand over any money and the man ran from the business, Maxin said. He was last seen running west on Avocado Boulevard.
The man was wearing dark-colored clothing and concealed his face during the robbery attempt.
