TUCSON, Ariz. -- A suspect wearing a demon mask and holding a knife attempted to rob a woman at a bank ATM in Tucson and authorities are asking for the public's help to identify him.

According to the Pima County Sheriff's Department, the robbery occurred at the Bank of America near Thornydale Road and Linda Vista Boulevard at approximately 10 p.m. on March 18.

The victim had deposited her paycheck and wanted to withdraw some money from the drive-up ATM. While the woman was seated in her car, the suspect appeared and said something to her but she was not able to understand as she only speaks Spanish, sheriff's detectives said.

The suspect reportedly held a knife that was possibly a large folding knife.

The victim pulled her arm back inside her vehicle and drove away. She said she looked in her rearview mirror and saw the suspect manipulating the ATM. It was later determined that no money had been withdrawn from the account.

Surveillance footage obtained from the bank showed a male individual with a light complexion and dark hair, wearing dark clothing and what appears to be a green demon mask with purple horns.

Detectives are asking for any information on the possible identity of the suspect or any other information pertinent to this case. Call 911 or 88-CRIME with any tips.
