A 21-year-old Paso Robles man allegedly robbed a driver at gunpoint Monday evening and then punched him in the face.

The incident occurred around 7 p.m. at the intersection of Creston Road and Santa Ynez Road, according to the Paso Robles Police Department. Rafael Aguilar Anguiano, 21, allegedly used a replica pistol BB gun to rob the victim of $50 cash.

Prior to the robbery, the victim was driving his car and noticed he was being followed by a white Chevrolet Camaro, according to a police department press release. The victim stopped at the intersection, and the Camaro stopped next to him.

The victim told police that a passenger in the Camaro pointed a black pistol at him and got out of the car. The suspect demanded money from the victim, who was still sitting in his vehicle.

The victim gave all of his money to the suspect. The suspect then punched the victim in the mouth and fled in the Camaro.

Moments later, a Paso Robles officer located the Camaro as it was leaving a parking lot near Sherwood Road and Creston Road. The officer stopped the vehicle along the 100 block of Santa Ynez Drive.

During a search of the vehicle, officers found a black BB gun pistol, a shotgun, ammunition, a small amount of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

The victim identified Anguiano as the man who robbed him at gunpoint. The victim also identified three other suspects as being in the car during the robbery.

    Besides all the very obvious issues, one has to wonder why a 35 year old is hanging out with 19, 21, and 22 year olds.

    I don’t know; the face tattoos send out that friendly message that he just wants to work hard and needs a hug, don’t you think?

    Well, that is as good a reason as any to get a concealed carry permit. Time to do that homework and start packing.

        We have the right to protect ourselves even if the citation writers deny us a permit. I carried a 357 in L A and if I feel the need I will do it here.

        That area near Sherwood Park is ghetto central. Worse than Oak Park or North Spring. Stabbings, sexual assault, drive-by…and NorCoMod’s right. All perps were Hispanics.
