Tucson police are looking for gunman who robbed a midtown convenience store and beat a customer and a clerk with a baseball bat.

The man entered Quik Mart, 5860 E. 22nd Street, about 11:20 p.m. on Jan. 6, brandished a gun and demanded money, Sgt. Chris Widmer, a Tucson police spokesman said in a news release.

The man left with an undisclosed amount of money and was confronted by a customer in the parking lot, the release said. The man then hit the customer in the arm with a baseball bat he had hidden under his coat.

The man left on foot.

Officers were called back to the store a few hours later about 2 a.m. when the clerk reported that the robber  had returned and hit him in the shoulder with a baseball bat while he was outside taking out the trash.

The man told the clerk he came back for retaliation because the clerk called police after the earlier robbery, the release said.

Both the clerk and customer had minor injuries.

The robber is between 30 to 35 years old, stands 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs between 160 to 180 pounds. He has red facial hair and was last seen wearing a light blue baseball cap, black leather jacket and blue jeans.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME (882-7463).
