Cigar-store clerk foils robbers by taking away gun
A cigar store clerk foiled an armed robbery attempt by two men and a woman Saturday, San Diego police said.
The three entered a cigar store on Balboa Avenue near Genesee Avenue in Clairemont about 1 p.m., and the woman pulled out a gun and demanded money, police said.
The clerk managed to take the gun away, and the three left empty-handed.
The woman was described as white, 30 to 35 years old, heavy-set with long blond hair. She wore a blue jacket and blue jeans.
The men were described as white, 30 to 35 years old, with medium builds and average height. They wore blue shirts and blue jeans.
