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 Palm and Morro streets at 10:30 p.m. 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, hooded sweatshirt and baggie pants;
• Light-skinned male, 5 feet 5 inches tall, possibly wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt;
• Unknown race male, 5 feet 5 inches tall, possibly wearing a dark, checkered, hooded 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 Stoppers at 549-STOP.

Police reserve Det. Mike Zigelman recently completed a two-week seminar on computer forensics and advanced investigations.
The course, sponsored by the Advanced Training Center of the California Department of Justice, was meant to help the police department prevent and investigate computer-related crime.
It was part of a six-course training series that dealt with various high-tech crime issues, police said.
Eighteen investigators attended the most recent seminar, and the Santa Maria Police Department was the only other agency from the immediate area to attend, Arroyo Grande police said.
