Pair robbed at gunpoint in downtown San Luis Obispo

Two people walking to their car in downtown San Luis Obispo on Tuesday night were robbed at gunpoint by three men.

The pair, a 30-year-old woman and a 33-year-old man, both of Los Osos, were walking to their car near the intersection of Palm and Morro Streets at 10:30 when they were approached by the three men, according to police. One of the men pulled out a handgun and demanded property from the victims.

The victims handed over the property, and the three men left on foot.

Investigators think the men may be associated with a white, full-size quad cab pickup truck. There may have been a "bulky item" in the bed of the truck, and it may have had a lifted suspension.

The suspects were described as follows:

  • Light skinned male, 5 feet 8 inches tall, thin build, wearing a dark colored hoodie sweatshirt and baggie pants;
  • Light skinned male, 5 feet 5 inches tall, possible wearing a dark colored hoodie sweatshirt;
  • Unknown race male, 5 feet 5 inches tall, possibly wearing a dark checkered hoodie sweatshirt.

The victims asked that their identities be withheld.

Anyone with information is asked to call San Luis Obispo police at 781-7317 or Crime Stopper at 549-STOP.
