ORIGINAL STORY: Police are reportedly investigating a robbery that happened in Paso Robles over the weekend.

Marcy Greenberg, the assistant manager at Savage Spirits & Deli, says it’s the first time the store has been robbed since opening 20 years ago.

She says she was in the deli Saturday night when she heard the bell go off and came out to see a masked man wearing overalls, glasses and a hat standing at the register.

Greenberg says the man pointed a gun at her and demanded money.

The robbery was reportedly caught on surveillance.

“I hope they catch him before he goes somewhere else and somebody gets hurt," she told KSBY News.

"When I opened this morning (Sunday), I was thinking, 'I feel violated,' you know? He came to my store with his gun, but other than that, I'm pretty good."

KSBY has reached out to Paso Robles police for more information but has not yet heard back.
