San Diego police detectives are searching for a suspect who was caught on surveillance tape robbing a yogurt shop in Hillcrest.

According to SDPD officials, the robbery happened Tuesday at around 9:30 p.m. at the Golden Spoon Yogurt shop located at 1200 University Ave.

An unknown man entered the shop, went behind the counter and confronted employees in the back. He threatened employees with a knife and demanded money, detectives said.

The man was given an undisclosed amount of cash from the safe. He fled the shop on foot and was last seen walking westbound on University Ave.

According to police, the entire robbery was caught on camera. The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s. He’s 6-foot to 6-foot-3 with a thin build and short light brown or dark blond hair.

He was wearing jeans, a dark blue jacket and a green turtleneck shirt, which he pulled up to cover the lower portion of his face during the robbery.

The suspect threatened employees with a small knife, similar to a box cutter.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the Robbery Unit at (619) 531-2299 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
