Baskin Robbins Robbery Suspects Sought by La Mesa Police

The armed suspect pointed his revolver at the shop's employees, ordered them to lay on the ground, then told one to fill a bag with money from the register, police said.

La Mesa police are on the lookout Friday for two robbers who held up an ice cream shop at gunpoint and got away with a bag of cash.

A gun-wielding male and his accomplice entered the Baskin Robbins at 8807 La Mesa Blvd. about 9:45 p.m. Thursday, according to a La Mesa police statement.

The armed suspect pointed his revolver at the shop's employees, ordered them to lay on the ground, then told one to fill a bag with money from the register, police said. The robbers then ran off, and no one was injured, police said.

Officers searched the surrounding area using a helicopter but did not find the robbers.

Both suspects were described as black males with white cloth covering their faces. The armed robber wore a white sweatshirt with a gray sleeveless shirt on top, a green and black baseball cap and black and white tennis shoes.   The other was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and white tennis shoes.

This Baskin Robbins location is no stranger to robberies, having been robbed in 2010 and 2011.
