Paso Robles motel clerk fights off intruders

Paso Robles police are searching for a pair of would-be robbers whom a motel clerk fought off early Monday morning.

Shortly before 1 a.m., two male suspects dressed in dark clothing rang the bell at the Economy Inn, summoning the clerk from the backroom. The suspects requested a room, but the clerk told them through the locked front door that the motel was full, according to the Paso Robles Police Department.

The suspects left and then returned minutes later, kicking in the locked office door. The clerk tried to hold the door shut as both suspects pushed their way in.

Once the suspects made entry, they attacked the clerk and demanded money. One suspect was armed with hard knuckles and the other one had a long-bladed object, as well as a prominent “man-bun.”

The clerk fought back, pushing one of the would-be robbers out of the office while being attacked by the other from behind. After the clerk managed to gain separation from the attackers, the suspects fled to a nearby alley.

Paso Robles police are circulating surveillance images of the suspects. Anyone who has information about the incident is asked to contact the police department.

OMG, you rob a cheapy motel? That is hilarious! Like they will have ALL this cash?? LoL

Obviously kids. Probably stepping in or something dumb like that. I mean, how many will actually pay for a room with cash? Could not have been about needing money. But what bothers me about this story, is these skinny kids were able to kick in a locked door? how strong was that door?

Way to go clerk!!!! We are tired of thieves stealing money, tools, boxes, catalytic converters, mail…and on and on and on. If its more painful to work (a cakewalk these days) instead of steal, they’ll keep stealing.
