Surveillance photos were made public Wednesday in an effort to identify a man who robbed a 7-Eleven store in Pacific Beach at gunpoint and his female accomplice.
The suspects entered the convenience store on Garnet Avenue near Pendleton Street with their faces covered around 5:15 a.m. on July 26.
The man, who was armed with a semiautomatic handgun, demanded money and then grabbed cash from the register, according to San Diego Police and Crime Stoppers.
The woman did not take anything before fleeing with the gunman, who was described as a heavyset Hispanic man in his late 20s. He was about 5 feet 9 and was wearing a black and white plaid hooded sweatshirt, blue baseball cap, black pants and gray and blue gloves, with a gray bandana over the lower part of his face.
His accomplice was described as a heavyset Hispanic woman in her early 20s, about 5-foot-5. She was wearing a black sweatshirt with a black and red striped hood, a light purple baseball cap, white T-shirt, black pants, white shoes and a purple glove on her right hand.
They were last seen headed east on Garnet Avenue in a sedan, possibly a 2005 model, four-door Toyota Camry, with paper covering the rear license plate, police said.
Anyone with information on the robbery was asked to call police at (619) 531-2299, or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477. The organization can also be contacted by email at sdcrimestoppers.org.
