PHOENIX -- Police are asking the public to help identify a suspect in the armed robbery of a Phoenix Circle K.

Police said a man entered a Circle K store on 35th Avenue north of McDowell Road around 11:20 p.m. March 5 and directed the clerk to the cash register, demanding money and cigarettes.

The man also reportedly tried to get keys to a car parked outside the store but left after the clerk said he didn't know the owner.

The suspect was last seen running west on Monte Vista Road.

The suspect is described as a 17-year-old Hispanic male, about 5 feet 2 inches tall. He was wearing a black No. 6 Miami Heat jersey, black undershirt, black jeans, black beanie, leather gloves, and a blue bandanna over his face.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS or 1-800-343-TIPS. Anonymous tips can also be left online at www.silentwitness.org.

Witnesses could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
