Two men walked into the south Sacramento Calvine Urgent Care with guns drawn and demanded money Wednesday night.

“As I walked out, there was a gun in my face and they were screaming, ‘give me the money, give me the money,'” said manager Susan Pellegrini. “My front desk gal hit the floor and rolled under the counter.”

After the suspects pistol whipped the girl behind the counter, Pellegrini grabbed the young woman, locked her in her office and used a pillow to stop the blood.

“There was blood all over from the reception area to here,” said Pellegrini.

The two men took the money and vanished, but hidden cameras and other security measures caught their every move.

“I have taken all precautions here to train our staff to do what they did last night: get out of the way and hand them whatever they ask for,” said the facility owner’s wife, Margaret Kapasi.

Authorities arrived shortly after and no one else was hurt.

The victim was treated at Calvine Urgent Care last night and she is doing O.K.

Calvine Urgent Care wants to reasure the public they are a safe haven for those needing medical treatment and will look at ways to beef up their security system.
