PHOENIX -- Phoenix police are looking for a woman in connection with a car theft last month.

Police said the victim met the woman on Aug. 24. At approximately 10 p.m., they drove the victim's Mercedes Benz to a Circle K at 19th and Dunlap avenues and purchased some items.

According to Phoenix police Detective Mike Fischer, the woman told the victim that she needed a ride to the area of 20th and Hayward avenues to take care of a detail. After dropping her off, the victim waited in his car for her to return.

Fischer said a man pointed a silver handgun at the victim through the driver's side window and told him to get out of the car. The suspect got in and drove westbound on Hayward Avenue.

The woman never returned to the victim's location after the robbery.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned Hispanic male, 23 to 25 years old, 5 feet 7 inches, 140 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He reportedly was wearing a Spurs jersey.

The woman is described as a Hispanic female, 18 to 25 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, 110 pounds, with black hair, brown eyes and a tattoo on her left shoulder. She was wearing a red tank top and jean shorts.

The victim's vehicle has not been recovered. It is described as a black 1999 Mercedes Benz.
