TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department asks for the public's help in locating an aggravated assault suspect connected to an attempted Walmart robbery.

Foothills District deputies responded to a call of an aggravated assault on Oct. 12 at a Walmart in the 7600 block of N. La Cholla Blvd for a man who allegedly tried to steal CDs and videos.

A loss prevention employee reportedly confronted the suspect, who then put the backpack on the ground and walked away.

The employee told the suspect to follow him, but the man reportedly pulled a knife out of his pocket, held it at his side and said "bye" to the employee before fleeing southbound toward Ina Road on his bike.

The suspect is described as a being in his mid- to late-40s, between 5'10" and 6' tall and has a goatee. He was last seen wearing a black hat and a flannel shirt.

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