PHOENIX -- Silent Witness is offering a reward to help capture a suspect who robbed a Phoenix store nearly two months ago.

Shortly after 8 a.m. on Sept. 17, the suspect entered a store near 16th and Van Buren streets and approached the sales counter.

Phoenix police Detective Mike Fischer said the suspect pointed a black semi-automatic handgun at a female clerk and ordered her to the ground. The suspect then removed cash from the register along with other items from the store.

The suspect fled in an older-model, baby-blue, convertible Chevrolet Cavalier in an unknown direction.

The suspect is described as a male, approximately 40 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall and 180 pounds. He was wearing a black baseball cap, sunglasses and a black T-shirt with the words "Bada Bing" on the front.

Silent Witness is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information that leads to an arrest or indictment of the suspect. Call 480-WITNESS with any information.
