TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department asks for the public's help in identifying a strong arm robbery suspect who targeted a Safeway store.

Two suspects reportedly threw a garbage can and attempted to punch a Safeway employee who confronted them as they tried to leave the store without paying for a cart full of liquor on May 7, sheriff's officials confirmed.

Deputies responded to the store in the 2900 block of W. Valencia Road and arrested 20-year-old James Alvarez on charges of aggravated robbery but seek another suspect who fled the scene.

Authorities described the suspect as Hispanic, about 20 years old, bald and has a heavy build. He was last seen wearing a black, hooded sweatshirt.

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