An employee at a local AT&T store was tied up and robbed at gunpoint Saturday night, officials said.

The robbery happened around 6:30 p.m. at an AT&T on Bernardo Plaza Drive.

Police say two unknown men entered the store and forced an employee into a back room at gunpoint. The suspects then bound the employee with duct tape and ransacked the store.

The suspects made off with cash and several stolen items, including cell phones. They were last seen fleeing northbound on foot on Bernardo Plaza Drive.

Witnesses told police the suspects were wearing white ski masks during the robbery. No further suspect descriptions were immediately released.

By the time officers arrived at the scene, the victim had freed himself. No injuries were reported.

Hours later -- in an unrelated robbery -- police say two men armed with guns robbed an adult bookstore in Kearny Mesa. The men entered the store, brandished a gun and demanded cash from employees.

No one was injured and police say they do not believe the two robberies are related.
