Two armed men attempted to break into a golf course in Bonita Thursday, officials from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department said.

According to officer Melissa Aquino, deputies received reports of a possible burglary in progress in the 5400 block of San Miguel Road right around 11:30 a.m.

Two men had been attempting to allegedly break into a nearby golf course when an employee spotted them.

Aquino says the employee ran after the suspects and caught up with them. One of the suspects then brandished a handgun so the employee would back off.

The armed men fled the scene. Deputies did not immediately locate the suspects, and they remain at large.

A resident in the area told NBC 7 she saw two young men with backpacks jump a small fence toward a ravine before running away from the area.

Nearby golfers said they saw the men get into a black Lexus and drive away from the scene.
