SAN DIEGO -- A bakery in Normal Heights was robbed today by a man brandishing a gun, according to the San Diego Police Department.
  
Shortly after 1 p.m., the gunman went into the Incredible Cheesecake Company, at 3161 Adams Ave., aimed a gun at an employee and demanded money, Officer Frank Cali said.
  
The type of firearm wasn't disclosed.
  
Cali said the man -- described as white, in his mid-30s, about 5-foot-7 and thin -- took the money and ran, heading south along Iowa Street.
  
The gunman wore a large-brimmed black bucket hat, a black turtleneck shirt, a long-sleeved shirt with green and gray vertical stripes and black Docker-style pants, police said.
