SOUTH TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The South Tucson Police Department is asking for the public's help in locating a suspect in an armed robbery that took place Wednesday, May 17. 

According to a STPD release, officers were called to a Circle K at 2004 South 6th Avenue at 10:13 a.m. today for an armed robbery. 

Officers at the scene learned the suspect had entered the store and walked behind the counter, armed with a screw driver he demanded that a clerk give him all the money in the register.  He then told a second clerk they had "10 seconds to open your register", while pointing the screwdriver to within inches of the clerk's body.  According to STPD the suspect got away with $77 from both registers. 

The suspect left the store heading eastbound into a residential neighborhood.  He is described as a Hispanic male 5-foot 8-inches tall, weighing 175-180 pounds, with a beard and trimmed mustache and medium length hair that was high on top and shaved on both sides, a stocky build and tattoos on his arms.  He was also barefoot and wearing a black SS t-shirt with San Francisco NL West Division Champions 2010 printed on front and shorts with two colors.
