FORTUNA – Fortuna police are seeking a suspect in an armed robbery that took place just outside of the city’s Safeway.
Allegedly, a man came from behind a woman and brandished what appeared to be a black pistol and demanded property just before midnight on Thursday.
Police say the man then shot at the ground before fleeing the scene in a white sedan, possibly a Prius, with some of the woman’s items.
It was later discovered the weapon was actually a BB gun.
The suspect is described as a black male with a beard, wearing a white hoody and dark pants.
Any further information on the incident should be directed to the Fortuna Police Department.
