A San Luis Obispo man is arrested in connection with an armed robbery, but officers say his partner in crime is still outstanding.
The San Luis Obispo Police Department says at about 10:00p.m. on February 6th, an armed robbery happened near the corner of Marsh and Nipomo Streets in San Luis Obispo.
