TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson Police are asking for help identifying a man who they call a suspect in an armed robbery last month.

The suspect is described as Hispanic, in his late teens or early 20s, 6'00" to 6'02" tall, 170 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

According to police, at about 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 27 the man allegedly hid items in his vest pockets and inside a shopping bag and tried to leave the Walmart at 1260 East Tucson Marketplace Boulevard, near South Park Ave and Interstate 10, without paying for the items.

When asset protection officers tried to stop the suspect, police say he allegedly threatened to use a taser on store employees.

Police say no weapon was seen and no one was injured in the incident, which ended with the suspect fleeing on foot to the north.

Anyone with information is urged to contact 911 or 88-CRIME.
