TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson police are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect in an armed robbery from May. 

According to a recent release, the suspect entered the 7-Eleven at 4680 East Broadway on May 10 and took a case of beer from a cooler.  

He was trying to leave the store without paying when an employee stopped him and asked that the beer be returned.  

It was at this point, said the TPD release, that the suspect pulled out a black handgun and threatened the employee. 

He then left the store with the beer. 

The suspect is described as a Hispanic man in 30s, 5'3" to 5'5" tall, weighing 150 to 170 pounds.

He was last seen wearing a dark gray sweatshirt, black baseball style hat and baggy blue jeans. 

Anyone with information about this suspect is asked to call 88-CRIME.

They can remain anonymous.
