Daylight Robbery At Denny's On Spring
SPRING STREET -- This one didn't exactly fit the pattern.
The latest La Mesa robbery didn't occur in the evening or early morning hours. Instead, Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. a man strolled into Denny's Restaurant at 4235 Spring St., presented a note demanding money and simulated a handgun under his clothing during the robbery. The suspect fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was injured during crime.
The suspect was described as a white male, 30-35 years old, 6 foot tall, 200 lbs., wearing a green hat, beige colored pullover sweatshirt and jeans. The suspect was last seen running across the street toward a large apartment complex. No vehicle was seen. A Sheriff's Department helicopter and K-9 responded with La Mesa Police officers but the suspect was not found.

The recent spate of robberies in La Mesa have occurred at late night or 24-hour establishments and featured armed robbers who raced off onto the Interstates. This one didn't fit that pattern, but police continue to make special efforts to combat the spree.
