SCOTTSDALE - Police are looking for a man accused of robbing an armored car driver outside of a supermarket.

The alleged robbery took place at about 9:30 on Monday morning at a Fry's store located in the 6000 block of E. Thomas Road.

Police say a white of Hispanic suspect armed with a black handgun approached a Loomis Armored employee who had just exited the store, where there is a Bank of America branch. The suspect reportedly demanded money before the driver was able to get in the armored truck.

The robber left the scene on foot through a parking lot into a neighboring apartment complex, taking an undisclosed amount of cash with him.

Scottsdale Police officers searched the area but could not locate the suspect.
