PASO ROBLES, Calif. – Officers responded to an armed robbery call at a CVS store on Niblick Road around 9:45 p.m. on Tuesday night, according to Paso Robles Police.

Police said described the robber as a man dressed in all black, wearing a black ski mask.

The robber entered the store and immediately demanded money from the cashier, threatening them with flashing a knife, according to police.
