Atascadero police arrested a man in connection with an armed robbery last month.

The robbery was reported on the afternoon of Saturday, Dec. 18, 2021.

Police say a woman reported that she was approached by a man in the 9000 block of Coromar St. The man reportedly pointed a handgun at her and demanded her purse; she gave the man cash and he ran away.

Police say they were able to identify a suspect in the case earlier this month and on January 11, arrested Brandon Oakley, 38, of Paso Robles.

Oakley was booked into San Luis Obispo County Jail on a charge of robbery and is being held on $60,000 bail.
