A robbery in the 4600 block of East Desert Oak has prompted a soft lockdown at the Tucson Jewish Community Center.

The threat is not directly to the JCC according to the Pima County Sheriff's Department.

A lady was at her home in the area when she saw a man in her backyard.

At first, she thought he was there to service her pool, but then he started to break into her home. 

When PCSD arrived, they did not locate the suspect, so as they look the JCC is on a lockdown as a precaution. 

The suspect is described as an adult Caucasian male. He was last seen wearing a dark blue shirt and khaki shorts.

Tucson Police is assisting with the search.
