A masked thief wielding a handgun robbed a Bay Park cell phone store Wednesday afternoon.
The robber confronted an employee at the Verizon shop in the 2900 block of Clairemont Drive shortly before 11:30 a.m. and ordered him to open a safe in the business, according to San Diego police.
After the worker complied, the bandit stole his mobile phone and wallet, Officer Sarah Foster said. The thief then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash and cellphones.
The robber remained at large Wednesday afternoon, Foster said.
