A gunman robbed a Cathedral City adult video store and zapped an employee with pepper spray this morning, authorities said.
The robber entered Perez Images at 68360 Perez Road around 1:30 a.m., displayed a handgun and demanded cash, said Cathedral City police Sgt. Julio Luna.
An employee allowed the suspect access to a cash register, Luna said, adding that after he took money, he doused the worker with pepper spray and ran away.
The suspect is described as 5 feet 9 and 200 pounds. He was wearing a green camouflage hat and dark clothing. His race could not be determined because his face was concealed, Luna said.
Anyone with information about the robber was asked to call Cathedral City police at (760) 770-0300 or (760) 770-0302.
