October 5, 2012 (Spring Valley)—Last night around 10:35 p.m., Lemon Grove Deputies received a radio call reporting a strong arm robbery at the 7-11 store at 103 Worthington St. in Spring Valley. One suspect was a Hispanic male with a large build, shaved head, goatee, and multiple tattoos, wearing a white tank top and black shorts. The second suspect was a Hispanic female, average build, wearing a black tee-shirt and black spandex pants. Both suspects entered the store and selected one 18-pack of Miller light and one 18-pack of Bud light.

The male suspect put the beer on the counter, then picked it back up and walked outside, where he encountered a store employee who was smoking a cigarette. The suspect said to the clerk, "go ahead and do something."

Both suspects got into a four door, grey Camry sedan. The clerk was able to get a plate since they parked the car right in front of the store. The car came back an unreported stolen vehicle. The vehicle drove westbound on Paradise Valley road. The clerks were not injured.
