TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who is suspected in two armed robberies and of firing a gun into a fast-food restaurant.

According to police, the suspect is described as a light-skinned Hispanic man, mid to late 20s, 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-11 with a thin to medium build and a tattoo on his upper right collarbone area. He was last seen wearing a gray long-sleeved shirt, dark pants, gloves, black bandana, and a blue baseball hat with a star on the front and a light-colored brim.
