A man dressed in blue robbed a Paso Robles cafe at gunpoint Tuesday morning and successfully fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to the city’s police department.
At about 10:30 a.m., the suspect entered Chico’s Cafe at 834 11th Street. The suspect displayed a handgun, ordered the cafe clerk to take him to the back office and stole money from the cash register, a police news release states.
The robber then fled out the back door while the clerk remained in the office. The clerk waited about five minutes before calling the police.
When officers arrived at the scene, the suspect had already fled the area.
The clerk described the suspect as a white male in his mid-30s with a thin build. The robber was reportedly wearing a blue beanie style cap, a blue shirt, blue jeans and a bandana over his face.
Police are asking anyone with information about the robbery to call the Paso Robles police department at (805) 237-6464 or Crime Stoppers at (805) 549-STOP.
