3 Men Rob Market at Gunpoint

The armed robbery happened at Anderson's Market & Deli on Home Avenue in the Fairmont Park neighborhood

Three men wearing hoodies covering their faces and armed with guns stormed a small market in the Fairmont Park area Friday night and made off with cash, police confirmed.

The San Diego Police Department (SDPD) said the armed robbery happened around 9:20 p.m. at Anderson's Market & Deli located at 4131 Home Ave.

Three unknown men – wearing dark clothing and hoodies clinched tight to cover their faces – entered the business and robbed it at gunpoint.

The SDPD said one man was armed with a shotgun, while the other two brandished handguns. The trio took cash and cash drawers from two registers at the market and fled on foot. The suspects were last seen running eastbound on Home Avenue, police said.

No further descriptions of the suspects were immediately released.

Two people were inside the store at the time of the robbery but no one was harmed, police said. The owner was understandably shaken by the scary ordeal.

At this time, the trio remains at large. The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information tied to this case can report those details to Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
