Three men from Sacramento were arrested after an alleged armed robbery in the parking lot of a San Luis Obispo sports bar and restaurant Wednesday night.

About 10:20 p.m., the San Luis Obispo Police Department received a report that two men robbed someone at gunpoint in a parking lot next to Buffalo Wild Wings in the Madonna Plaza Shopping Center, Lt. Bill Proll said.

The men allegedly fled north on Highway 101 in a white Mercedes after taking cash from the victim, according to a news release from the San Luis Obispo Police Department. The victims followed the suspects for a time until returning to the scene to make a police report.

The CHP later pulled over the suspected vehicle on the highway near the Del Rio Road exit ramp in Atascadero, Proll said.

Antwain Wright, 21, Billy Adams, 23, and Eric Walters, 21, all from the Sacramento area, were booked into the San Luis Obispo County Jail on suspicion of robbery, conspiracy and possession of a loaded firearm. They remained in custody in lieu of $60,000 bail late Thursdy morning.

Following the traffic stop, San Luis Obispo officers responded to Atascadero and evidence was gathered that allegedly linked the three to the robbery.
