Paso Robles Police are searching for a suspect who robbed a juvenile on Monday. According to PRPD, they received a 911 call around 10:25 p.m. from a person reporting they had just been robbed in the 1900 block of Creston Road.
The male victim told police he had been walking by himself when he was confronted by two suspects who demanded his property. The victim said one of the suspects cut his arm with a knife and the other suspect punched him when he refused to surrender his property.
Police say the suspects were able to take the victim’s personal property and then fled the area on foot. 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.
Officers responded to the area and located one suspect hiding in the 200 block of Scott Street. The suspect was positively identified by the victim as the person who had injured him with a knife and stolen his personal property. The suspect was arrested without incident and later booked into the San Luis Obispo County Juvenile Services Center for robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and a probation violation.
The second suspect has not yet been identified. Police are withholding further details such as property involved and the age of all involved parties. The wound suffered by the victim was minor in nature and did not require medical treatment.
