A man apparently with a hankering for M&M’s robbed a store clerk at gunpoint in Bernal Heights on Tuesday afternoon, police said.
The suspect, described as a man in his 30s, entered a convenience store in the 3300 block of Mission Street around 1 p.m. and picked up a bag of the chocolate candies. The store is located in the same block as a five-alarm fire that injured three people and displaced 58 neighbors June 18.
He then approached the counter to pay, but as the clerk opened the register the suspect pulled out a silver handgun and pointed it at the clerk, according to police.
The victim backed away and the suspect pulled cash from the register before placing it into his bag and running away, headed south on Mission Street.
