An armed man wearing a fisherman’s hat robbed a sandwich shop in Rancho Bernardo Tuesday, stealing a cash register but leaving behind his gun, police confirmed.
The San Diego Police Department (SDPD) said a Submarina eatery located at 17090 Bernardo Center Rd. was robbed around 10:10 a.m.
According to investigators, an unknown man entered the sub shop armed with a gun and demanded cash from employees. The man then pulled out a gun and waved it around, police said.
