    According to police, a man described as being in his 30s entered the 7-Eleven at 644 San Ysidro Blvd. and demanded cash from the clerk.

    The suspect left with an undisclosed amount of money. Police described him as a Hispanic male, about 5-foot-6, wearing a blue shirt, blue pants, and a blue cap.

    The third in the string of robberies also happened in Kearny Mesa at about 1:30 a.m.

    Officers said a man walked into the 7-Eleven at 3860 Kearny Mesa Rd. demanding cash from the clerk. The suspect fled with some cash and cigarettes.

    Police described him as a 20 year-old Hispanic male, about 6 feet tall. He was wearing a black hoodie and jeans.
