–Paso Robles Police are investigating a robbery in which two suspects held a female cashier at gun point at 9:30 p.m. Friday night at Spirit gas station at the corner of 17th Street and Spring Street, according to police.
The two suspects were described as two Hispanic or white male adults, approximately 5’-03” tall and possibly 135-145 lbs. One suspect wore a bulky camouflage jacket, and the other wore a dark color large jacket. Both wore ski-masks with their faces entirely covered, and both wore gloves. One suspect pointed a rifle or shotgun at the clerk while the other carried a backpack and removed money from the cash register.
