The Boost Mobile store at 5900 Balboa Ave. was robbed at 7 p.m. Saturday by a 25- to 30-year-old man, San Diego Police Department Officer John Buttle said.

The suspect requested cash from the register and other items and the clerk complied, the officer said. The thief then placed the items in a bag and left the store heading east toward Balboa Avenue.

He was described as wearing black pants and a white t-shirt.

The loss was not immediately determined, Buttle said.

Another mobile phone store was robbed at 10 p.m. Friday with a similar description of the suspect. The T-Mobile store at 4724 Clairemont Mesa Blvd. was stolen by a man who showed a stun gun to the clerk.

The robber wore black pants, a white t-shirt and a mask.

Robbery detectives investigated to see if the two crimes were connected, an SDPD watch commander said.
