Armed man robs Nico's on Tucson's NW side

An armed man robbed a Nico's Taco Shop on Ina and Oldfather roads Saturday afternoon, escaping with an undisclosed amount of money, Marana Police said.

The man, described as 5-foot-4-inches to 5-foot-8-inches tall with a thin build and short brown hair, came into the restaurant around 3:45 p.m., demanding money. He's believed to be between 20 and 30 years old, Sgt. Chris Warren said.

Police arrived at 4231 W. Ina Rd., within three minutes, but the man escaped on foot.

Warren said police interviewed witnesses, but two women with two children left before they arrived. He encouraged the family to contact Marana police immediately.

"They were victims, too," Warren said. "The suspect pointed the gun at them."

The suspect is either Hispanic or white, Warren said, and was wearing a black hoodie and blue jeans.
