Tucson police are looking for a suspect in the armed robbery of a convenience store last month who was caught on a security camera.

The suspect, described as an 18- to 23-year-old man, standing 5-feet-7-inches tall and weighing between 140 and 160 pounds, robbed a Circle K at about 2:45 p.m. Jan. 9, Sgt. Chris Widmer, spokesman for the Tucson Police Department, said in a press release.

The suspect was wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt, plaid shorts and a yellow-brimmed baseball cap when he approached the cashier and demanded cash. The suspect had his hands in the pockets of his sweatshirt and implied he had a weapon, Widmer said.

The robber fled the store at 4160 N. First Ave., with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Anyone with information about the robbery or the suspect, should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
