TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima Community College has resumed normal operations at its downtown campus after police activity in the area prompted an alert on Wednesday, Oct. 4.

A police search for an armed-robbery suspect near the campus at 1255 N. Stone Avenue prompted the warning for people to stay away from the area.

According to Tucson Police Department spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Bay, police were looking for a suspect described as a Hispanic man, 5-foot-8, 150-170 pounds. He was last seen wearing a white baseball hat and either a gray or blue hooded sweatshirt, blue jean pants and white shoes. He may have gotten away on a bicycle.

The robbery happened at about 11:20 a.m. at Mendel's Wife The Tailor, 1495 N. Stone Avenue.

The suspect was armed with a handgun, but nobody was hurt in the incident.

The PCCAlert said anyone on the campus should follow police instructions and advised anyone not already on campus to stay away. Normal operations and classes resumed shortly before 2:30 p.m.

Police did not say what the status of their search was when PCC resumed classes.
