Shoe store robbed by gunman

September 26, 1996

A gunman robbed a Pasadena shoe store of an undisclosed amount of money Saturday, county police said.

The man was in the store in the first block of Mountain Road shortly before 9 p.m., asking clerks Gina Barnes, 24, and Andrea Robinson, 23, about shoes. After a brief time, the man disappeared, but Barnes found him in a rear storage room, police said.

The man pulled a gun and ordered Barnes to the floor, police said. A short time later, Robinson went to the storage room and also was ordered to the ground, police said.

The man forced Barnes to give him money from a cash register and a safe in the front of the store, police said. He took her back to the storage room and ordered both women to remain on the floor as he left through the front door, police said.

Several customers were in the store, police said.
