CARLSBAD (CBSLA.com) — Police are investigating an armed robbery at a Macy’s department store in Carlsbad Wednesday.
City of Carlsbad Police Department spokesperson Jodee Sasway told CBSLA officers arrived to the store located at 2557 El Camino Real at 9:07 a.m. following a report of a robbery.
Sasway told KNX1070’s Tom Reopelle a man walked into the retail store, gathered clothing, walked up to a clerk and “then showed an employee a handgun”.
“The employee put the clothes into a bag and then left the Macy’s into the mall,” Sasway said.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, between 20 and 30-years-old, wearing a black baseball cap backwards and a torn, black and white flannel shirt.
Police say the suspect never asked for money.
Investigators have concluded a search of the mall and the surrounding area and are proceeding with an active investigation.
