Gunmen rob Carlsbad discount store

Two gunmen robbed a discount store in Carlsbad but no one was hurt, police said.

The men entered Carlsbad Discount Store at 1005 Carlsbad Village Drive shortly before 8 p.m. Wednesday and walked around for a few minutes before exiting, according to the Carlsbad Police Department.

They re-entered a few minutes later, approached a clerk, drew black semi-automatic handguns, demanded money and put it in a bag from the store, police said.

Police described one of the gunmen as black, about 25, 5 feet 9 and 150 pounds. The other was white, about 25, 5 feet 8 and 180 pounds, with a shaved head, tattoos on his neck and severe acne.

The black suspect wore a white coat with a hood and black designs while the other wore a brown suede jacket. They were last seen leaving the store on foot, headed toward Oak Avenue, police said.
