An armed robbery occurred at the Kelso Depot Visitor Center around 3 a.m. on May 4th. The reporting party contacted the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department several hours later to report that two individuals had robbed him of money as he was leaving the outdoor restroom at the visitor center. He said that they were armed with a silver pistol, that they struck him four or five times over the head with the pistol, and that they then fled. Several minutes later, he reported seeing a car driving away from the far side of the visitor center. The Barstow office of the county sheriff’s department is leading the investigation.
