A man and a woman were arrested after they allegedly robbed a gas station Sunday night in downtown San Luis Obispo.
Lt. Jeff Smith said the Police Department received a 911 call at 11:25 p.m. reporting that a man had entered the Shell station at 296 Santa Rosa St. and motioned that he had a weapon in a jacket pocket. The man demanded money from the cash register, which the clerk handed over.
The suspect then fled on foot along with a woman who was acting as a lookout, Smith said.
The woman was later found in the parking lot of a Jack in the Box restaurant on Santa Rosa Street. She was identified as Miranda Bjerre, 20, of San Luis Obispo.

Lowman was booked into County Jail on suspicion of robbery and giving a false identity to a peace officer. Bjerre was booked into jail on suspicion of robbery. Bail for each was set at $30,000.
