A 911 call about a domestic dispute earlier this week netted responding deputies a suspect in an unusual armed robbery case.

Deputies were called Tuesday to an apartment in the 3200 block of West Ina Road about a domestic dispute, Deputy Tracy Suitt, spokesman for the Pima County Sheriff's Department, said in a news release.

During their investigation, the deputies were told that one of the parties, 34-year-old Victor Rodriguez, was involved in a March attempted robbery.

Detectives were called in and they found a mask matching the description of the one used in the attempted robbery at an ATM.

The night of March 18, a woman pulled up to the Bank of America drive-thru ATM near North Thornydale Road and West Linda Vista Boulevard. A man wearing a horned Halloween mask appeared at her window holding a knife. The woman quickly drove away and was unharmed.

Detectives also found other information linking Rodriguez to the attempted robbery, Suitt said.

Rodriguez was booked into the Pima County jail and is facing charges of armed robbery, aggravated assault, criminal damage and two counts each of disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia.
