6:24 PM: A sweatshirt and sunglass clad man (and since we have those details, we’ll throw in that he’s white) reportedly ordered coffee at a business on the 600 block of Mission, then indicated that he had a gun (he didn’t show it, just implied he had one) and robbed the cashier. No word on if he received and/or paid for the coffee. He has not been arrested.

I know, slow night! Which is good. But if you’re looking for more crime to chew over, did you see yesterday’s blotter?
