A man wanted in connection to a Circle K armed robbery turned himself in to Tucson police Friday.

Sean Patrick Tighe, 43, was booked into the Pima County jail on suspicion of aggravated assault and armed robbery, said Officer Brandon Tatum, a Tucson Police Department spokesman.

A man, who was captured on a surveillance camera March 5, entered the Circle K at 1735 W. Speedway, and pulled out a knife and demanded money from the clerk, said Tatum. 

He received an undisclosed amount of money and ran north from the store. No one was injured during the robbery, Tatum said.

Police released photos from the surveillance camera to local media, and Tighe turned himself in soon after stories aired and were posted online.
