Juan Carlos Garcia Ayala

Early Tuesday morning at about 12:40 a.m., the Paso Robles Police Department received a report of a robbery that had just occurred in the area of 24th and Black Oak.

A 20-year-old male victim reported that he had been robbed by two suspects in the area of 28th and Spring Street, and ran to the area of Black Oak Drive after the robbery. The victim reported that a male suspect had confronted him and demanded his personal property, while a female suspect came up from behind and held a knife to the victim’s back. Fearing for his safety, the victim emptied his pockets and ran away.

The victim had previously met the two suspects, so he was able to provide investigative leads for officers to follow-up on. The victim was not injured in this robbery.

Later Tuesday evening, at about 10:45 p.m., patrol officers located the two suspects from this case in the 1300 block of 24th Street. The suspects were detained without incident and arrested for the robbery.
