Armed thieves steal marijuana from yogi

SAN DIEGO - Two thieves armed with pistols assaulted and robbed a woman Friday as she arrived to work at a yoga school near Old Town, authorities reported.

The employee was opening up the business in the 2100 block of Hancock Street when the unidentified men came up behind her and pushed her inside shortly before 9 a.m., according to San Diego police.

One of the bandits punched the victim in the mouth, and both threatened her with their guns while stealing some marijuana and a cellphone from her, SDPD Officer Frank Cali said.

The robbers then left the building and fled in a small white sedan to the north, toward Interstate 5.

The worker's injuries were minor, Cali said.
