Robber nabs 18-pack from SLO Circle K
July 1, 2013
Around 2:20 a.m. on Monday, a Hispanic man in his 20s entered Circle K at 158 Higuera Street, walked directly to the beverage section and grabbed an 18 pack of beer. The man then walked to the front door and ran outside.
The store clerk chased the man with the beer, who stopped and reached toward his waistband while telling the clerk that he had a gun.
The clerk did not report seeing a weapon, but he feared for his safety and returned to the store.
Following the encounter with the clerk, the robber ran to a pick-up truck parked nearby and drove away with the lights out.
San Luis Obispo police say a second suspect may have been waiting in the truck.
Police describe the robber as 5 feet 8 inches tall with a thin build. He was wearing a black t-shirt, red shorts and a black baseball cap.
The police department is asking that anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect contact the department or Crime Stoppers.
