TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Authorities continue to search for an aggravated assault suspect who allegedly threatened a man with a gun at a gas station.

Rincon District Deputies responded to the 7-Eleven gas station in the 4600 block of E. Skyline Drive on September 23 after receiving a report of a man with a deadly weapon.

The victim told Rincon District deputies he was walking toward the gas station entrance to pre-pay for gas when another driver swung open his car door and almost hit him. The victim put his hand on the door to block it from hitting him, and the driver reportedly yelled at him and followed him into the store and kept yelling, police said.

The victim said he saw the suspect with a pistol. The suspect eventually returned to his vehicle.

Police say as the victim exited the store, the suspect pulled out of his parking space and pointed the gun at him. The victim said the suspect threatened to shoot him, but drove off in an unknown direction.

Police say he is about 6' tall, weighs around 175 pounds, and has short, dark hair. He was last seen wearing a dark tank top, shorts, a belt with a large buckle and a fedora hat. He also had several earrings in both ears.

He fled the scene in a teal, four-door Mazda sedan, according to a news release.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
