November 23, 2011 (La Mesa)— A lone gunman forced a female employee to open the door after closing time at the Golden Spoon Frozen Yogurt, 5640 Lake Murray Blvd., around 9:46 p.m. on November 21.   He ordered two employees to a back room and tied up the hands of one behind her back, using zip ties. He then ordered the other employee to hand over money from a safe.

The suspect then tied up the second employee and left with an undetermined amount of money.  A search of the area by La Mesa Police, with assistance of a Sna Diego Police helicopter, proved unsuccessful.  There were no injuries in the robbery. 

The suspect is described as a black male adult, 30-40 years old, 5’10”, medium build, who possibly has a deformity to one of his eyes. He was wearing a dark jacket, construction type boots, white gloves and had a sheer scarf or mask over his face.
