Armed Men Punch, Rob Woman in Mission Hills

An employee at a Mission Hills business was punched in the face and robbed at gunpoint by two men while opening up shop Friday morning, according to San Diego police.

Just before 9 a.m., police say the woman was opening a business in the 2100-block of Hancock Street when two men came behind her and pushed her inside.

The suspects reportedly then punched the woman before taking her cell phone and an undisclosed amount of marijuana from her.

Police say the suspects then fled the scene in a white sedan headed northbound toward a freeway.

The victim was left with minor injuries. Police had only a vague description of the two suspects.

SDPD’s Robbery Unit was said to be investigating incident.

The robbery wasn’t the first one to occur in the area.

Last year, a marijuana dispensary was robbed by two men armed with handguns.

During this robbery, the suspects ransacked the dispensary, ordering people to the ground, and took marijuana and cash before fleeing the scene.

Editor's Note: An earlier version of this story said the woman was an employee of a yoga studio in the area, per information from police. That is not the case. We regret the error.
