Police in South Tucson are seeking a rosary-wearing bandit who robbed a Circle K at knife-point last month

The store at South 6th Avenue and East 30th Street was hit on April 15 about noon by a man who took a 10-inch kitchen knife out of his backpack and advanced on a store clerk, a department news release said.

Anyone with information is asked to call 88-CRIME.
