Police say that armed robbers took cash from a Paso Robles liquor store Saturday night.
About 9:40 p.m., two men reportedly demanded money from the clerk at the JNJ Liquor Store at 3355 Spring St., according to the Paso Robles Police Department.
Before running away from the store, one of the robbers pistol-whipped the clerk, police said.
One of the robbers wore a blue hooded sweatshirt, while the other wore a gray hooded sweatshirt, according to police.
Police said both robbers were men and had their faces covered – one wearing a red bandana and the other a ski mask.
Minutes after the robbery, authorities searched the area but did not find the men after an hour and a half.
Atascadero Police Department’s search dog and a California Highway Patrol helicopter helped with the search.
