The robbery was reported around 9:10 p.m. in the 1600 block of Irving Street, which is near 17th Avenue.

The suspect, described as a man in his 20s, came into the business, pulled out a gun and forced an employee to the back of the store, where he took his property and ordered him to empty the cash register, according to police.

The man then fled with the cash, as well as the employee’s cellphone and wallet, police said. He had not been found as of this morning.

Anyone with information about the robbery is encouraged to call the Police Department’s anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a tip by text message to TIP411.
