A woman used a handgun to rob a shoe store Sunday in the San Ysidro neighborhood, police said.

The robbery happened at Prime Shoes at 320 West San Ysidro Blvd. at 11:13 a.m. Sunday, according to Officer Tony Martinez of the San Diego Police Department.

A woman entered the store and selected several items of clothing from a display rack, the officer said. She then approached the cashier, displayed the gun and demanded money from the cash register.

The cashier complied and the suspect fled the store with an undisclosed amount of money and clothing, Martinez said. Witnesses saw her getting into a dark sedan, he said.

Police described her as a Hispanic female, about 25, with a medium build and long dark hair with highlights. She wore a black hat with gold trim, a green military-style jacket and dark pants. Her face was covered with a blue medical mask.

San Diego robbery detectives responded to the scene and will handle the investigation.
