SAN DIEGO - A Riverside County man pleaded guilty today to committing several armed robberies across the San Diego area, including two at Oceanside cell phone stores.

Damian McDowell Green faces more than 34 years in prison when he is sentenced in August in San Diego Superior Court.

He pleaded guilty to nine counts of robbery and one count of receiving stolen property.

Green, 22, surrendered to detectives and deputy federal marshals at his Aguanga home on Jan. 31, according to Oceanside police.

He admitted threatening clerks with a handgun while stealing cash and mobile phones at Verizon Wireless stores in the 3700 block of Plaza Drive and the 4200 block of Oceanside Boulevard on Jan. 14 and Jan. 24, respectively.

During the first holdup, Green pistol-whipped an employee before fleeing, Oceanside police Lt. Leonard Cosby said. No serious injuries were reported.

Following his arrest, Green confessed to committing those holdups and others in Encinitas, Mira Mesa and Poway, according to police.
