Tucson police are asking the public for help in identifying a man in connection with pistol whipping a woman Sunday at a southwest side convenience store.

The man, who was captured on a surveillance camera, argued with two women shortly before 3 a.m. in the parking lot of Circle K, 2590 S. Mission Road, said Sgt. Chris Widmer, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

The convenience store is near West 36th Street.

During the argument, the man pulled out a gun and pointed it at both women. He then pistol whipped one of the women before climbing into the passenger seat of a white pickup, said Widmer.

The truck, which was driven by a woman, left the area.

The assailant was described as Hispanic and about 25 years old. He was 5 feet 7 inches tall with a medium build. He was wearing a black shirt, pants and ball cap, Widmer said.

The truck appeared to be a Nissan Frontier.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
