Paso Robles armed robbery suspects arrested
April 19, 2011
Paso Robles Police arrested two men on suspicion of several armed robberies that occurred last week in Paso Robles.
Police received a tip that Samuel Campos Salgado, 19, of Shandon, and Edward Joseph Anaya, 19, of Paso Robles and Kyle Joseph Murphy, 18, were responsible for robbing four male teenagers at gunpoint on the 3300 block of Park Street on Friday.
Police discovered that two of the men appear to also be responsible for the robbery of JNJ Liquor Store at 3355 Spring Street.
On Saturday night, two men with their faces covered either by a ski mask or a scarf demanded money from a liquor store clerk. Before fleeing the shop, one of the robbers pistol whipped the clerk.
Police are trying to determine if the suspects are also responsible for the armed robberies of Domino’s Pizza on April 3 and DK’s Donuts on April 4. Before leaving DK’s Donuts with an unknown amount of cash, the robber pistol whipped the cashier.
“It is premature to say that they are responsible for the other robberies, but it is suspicious,” said Paso Robles Police Department Lt. Ty Lewis
Police arrested Salgado and Anaya earlier today. They are looking for Murphy who is considered armed and dangerous.
He is a transient suspected of being in either Paso Robles or Atascadero.
Anyone with information on the robberies or Murphy’s location is asked to call Paso Robles police at 237-6464 or, if they wish to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 549-STOP.
