Tucson police are searching for a suspect after an armed robbery in a north-side Nico's Mexican Food restaurant Tuesday morning.

At about 2:30 a.m., two people displayed their guns to employees in order to rob the restaurant located at 2965 N. Campbell Ave., said Officer Ray Smith, a department spokesman. No one was injured in the incident.

Officers were then dispatched to a resident's report of a suspicious vehicle at East Glenn Street and North Euclid Avenue.

A short time later, the vehicle crashed into a home in an area just north of the reported call. There were no injuries reported in the crash.
