Authorities searched Friday night for an armed man who robbed a woman at the front door of her apartment in Vista, officials said.

San Diego County Sheriff's deputies responded at 7:02 p.m. to a report of a home-invasion robbery at 544 W. California St., Lt. William Donahue said.

A woman said she answered a knock on her door to a man who pulled out a gun and demanded money, Donahue said.

She gave him an unknown amount of cash and he fled with it on foot, Donahue said. The man was last seen leaping over a fence.

Deputies were unsuccessful in locating the suspect after a nearly two-hour search with help from police dogs and helicopters, Donahue said.

The man was described as looking in his 20s, clean shaven, and wearing a blue San Diego Padres shirt and brown shorts, Donahue said.
