Armed robber locks keys inside getaway, save window

San Diego police said a man with a shotgun, held up a 7-Eleven for having to break into his getaway car after locking the keys in.


A man with a shotgun, held up a 7-Eleven store in San Diego Friday morning, but almost impossible to get, because he apparently locked his keys in his car.

Authorities say the gunman entered the 7-Eleven supermarket in the 4100 block of University Avenue shortly after 4:30 pm

The gunman demanded money from the clerk and left with an undisclosed amount of money, 10News reported.

In the parking lot, the suspect apparently noticed he left his car keys in his getaway vehicle and was forced to break in his window to unlock the car.

The police told the San Diego Tribune investigators believe the suspect also stole cash and porn magazines from an adult bookstore for about 24 hours.

He was described as about 6 feet tall and in his 20s with long hair.

The police said that they are looking for a dark, four-door Nissan Sentra with a broken driver’s side window.
