Man smashes counter at Cow Hollow business, takes cash from register

A man robbed a store in the Cow Hollow area early this morning, police said.

The suspect in the robbery reportedly walked into the business in the 2600 block of Lombard Street about 12:39 a.m. and demanded the cash from the register, police said.

He then reportedly slammed his hands down on the counter, breaking it, and told the 40-year-old man behind the counter that he had a gun, police said, although a gun was not seen.

The employee gave the crook the cash from the register and he fled on foot northbound on Broderick Street toward the Marina.

There was very little suspect description Thursday. No arrest has been made.
