PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

The Phoenix Police Department and Silent Witness are looking for a man who robbed a Phoenix-area convenience store last month. 

According to Silent Witness, a man walked into a Circle K store near 32nd Street and Broadway Road just after 12:30 on the morning of October 18. 

The suspect then walked to the counter and asked the clerk for 12 packs of cigarettes. 

Instead of reaching for his wallet, the suspect reaches under his shirt like he has a handgun in his waistband.

According to Silent Witness Sgt. Jamie Rothschild, the suspect told the clerk, "you don't want to get shot, do you?" before taking the cigarettes and walking out.

"He didn't pull out a gun, he didn't display a weapon, but he acted like he had one and he made a veiled threat to them and that's all we need to elevate the seriousness of this crime," he said.
