A gunman clad in hoodie featuring the Virgen de Guadalupe on the back is being sought in connection with a convenience store robbery committed in front of several customers, officials said.

The gunman robbed the Circle K on West Valencia Road at South Camino de la Tierra on Tucson’s southwest side about 8:30 p.m. Monday. Clad in a dark hoodie, the gunman used a red bandanna to cover his face, the Pima County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.

A surveillance video shows a man waiting at the register during the robbery and a handful of people coming in to the store during the heist, including a woman with a young girl walking in to the store as the gunman walks out.

The robber, believed to be in his late teens to early 20’s might be linked to two other robberies in Tucson, the release said.

Anyone with information asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME, the anonymous tipster line.
