Oro Valley police are asking for the public's help in identifying an armed robber from an incident on Saturday night, according to a news release. 

Police say at 10 p.m. they responded to a report of an armed robbery at the Giant Station on Oracle and Magee. 

OVPD says the suspect went into the store and paid cash for a small amount of gas. He then left the gas pump area, returned a few minutes later and asked to use the restroom. 

Police say the suspect then went into the restroom to put on a bandana or ski mask of some type and rushed toward the clerk and pointed a black handgun at her and demanded money. 

The suspect left the store heading southbound. Oro Valley police searched the area but were not able to locate the suspect. 

He is described as a Hispanic or Caucasian man, approximately 5'9", 150 pounds, under 30 years of age. 

The suspect was last seen wearing black denim shorts and white tennis shoes with black laces. He is also described as having scarring on his face. 

If you have any information you are asked to call 88-CRIME, 9-1-1 or 520-229-4900.
