PACIFICA -- A Pacifica 7-Eleven store was robbed by an armed suspect over the weekend for the second time in two weeks, authorities said.

Officers responded about 2:15 a.m. Saturday and discovered the store at 137 Manor Drive had once again been robbed by a suspect who showed a knife to the store clerk, Pacifica police Capt. Joe Spanheimer said. While no one was hurt in the incident, the suspect demanded the register's cash and ran away.

Less than two weeks ago, a man of a similar description robbed the same store at knifepoint at 3:40 a.m. Jan. 30. In both cases, the suspect was described as a black man around 30 years old, about 5 feet 6 inches tall with a thin build. While the clothing description differed between the two separate dates, the same method of disguise was used in both cases, a dark bandanna in the most recent and a light blue bandanna in the January robbery.

Anyone with information about the suspect or either of the robberies may contact Pacifica police at 650-738-7314. The investigation is ongoing.
