Teen slashed during robbery

July 10, 2012

Two teens robbed, punched and slashed another teen on Monday evening on the 1900 block of Creston Road in Paso Robles.

The unnamed victim said he was walking alone when the two suspects demanded his property. After he refused, one of the suspects allegedly cut his arm with a knife and the other punched him.

Police found the suspect who allegedly slashed the victim hiding on Scott street. Officers arrested the juvenile for robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and a probation violation. He was then booked into the San Luis Obispo County Juvenile Services Center.

The other suspect is described as 15 to 19 years old, approximately six-feet tall with a muscular build.

Police are asking anyone with information about this crime to call Crime Stoppers at 805-549-7867.

What about the homicide where a 19 (or so) year old girl was found dead along side of the tennis courts at Sherwood Park? It was within the last 18 – 24 months and quickly swept under the rug.

Mary Malone…. You express yourself very well…… and quite often, on most subjects. You must spend a lot of time on the computer……… My question is : are You retired, or have a lot of free time ? Anyhow…. Your very good, and keep up the good work. Thanks.

Same area near Senor Sanchos where a woman was allegedly sexually assaulted earlier this year. And last year, there was a drive-by nearby…now this.

Jim App and the city council want to assure us that crime IS down in Paso. Don’t worry fairgoers! All the cops will be by the fairgrounds anyway; who cares about the locals!



Someone sent me a link to a Google Earth map of that block. Unless there has been a great deal of change since the Google Earth image was last updated, it looks like a normal, okay neighborhood.

Even if i didn’t know the backstory of Paso Robles and its Police Department, just reading there has been three violent–assault crimes in this block, all in the past year, would raise questions in my mind regarding the efficacy of the Police Department.

Here’s the url to the map sent to me:


BTW, that’s an odd-looking asphalt crack in the roadway, leading to the storm drain, in front of what appears to me to be 1902. They might want to get Public Works out to look at it.

Hey Mary…you need to come in person & check it out. I drive by there daily and the Senor Sanchos shopping plaza and the surrounding apartments are basically lil’ Tijuana. Very poorly maintained low-income housing, 2 city parks which locals know to avoid after dark, recurring grafitti , leaky roofs covered in tarps, etc. I can’t believe slumlords are allowed to rent places in such filthy shape. Across the street is Dry Creek (another sanctuary city area) and it’s silghtly better. Overall, it’s a few blocks of third-world living conditions.

When I used the term “barrio” in my previous post, I wasn’t exaggerating. It’s sad because decades ago, the Sherwood Park neighborhood was full of middle-income working folks. Now it’s common to see houses crammed w/10+ adults and 5-6 cars parked in front of each one. The apartments nearby are the same way. And the area where the sexual assault, recent stabbing and last year’s drive-by occurred are poorly lit and I would NEVER walk there at night and I NEVER let my kids walk through there alone in the day OR night.

I actually see the cops patrolling there every so often during the school year (there’s an elementary school nearby) but just like in Oak Park at the north end of town (which is another overcrowded barrio) there absolutely needs to be more law enforcemen patrolling there, day and night.

Because crime NEVER happens in other cities. Why is it every time ANYTHING happens in Paso you have to make some type of vitriolic remark. The news tonight said that Paso PD caught BOTH suspects. That story was after all the burlgaries in SLO (Jim’s Campus Camera, then stolen credit cards used at Mac Superstore), car burgs at Avila Resort, break ins in Templeton, plus assault on women in SLO, etc, etc. Clearly you have a hot spot for PRPD. What is the point in continuing the assault on the hard working cops that had nothing to do with all the previous drama? They caught both suspects: GOOD JOB PRPD! There, was that so bad?

For shame! Certainly these children were only playing and this is all just one big misunderstanding. Let’s all get out hoodies on and support these children and help them out from this out of control legal system!

According to KCOY, “The suspects were both described as Hispanic males. One suspect was described as 15 to 19 years of age, approximately four feet tall with a thin build, last seen wearing a gray t-shirt and jeans. The other suspect was described as 15 to 19 years of age, approximately six feet tall with a muscular build, last seen wearing a light colored t-shirt and jeans.” So…no hoodies involved, only t-shirts.

But good luck finding the punk; this description describes 90% of the teens in that barrio neighborhood.

Four feet tall and a thin build? That certainly sounds scary.
