TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The Pima County Sheriff's Department is asking for the help of the public in locating an armed robbery suspect.

According to Dawn Barkman, on Jan. 16 a male suspect entered the Quik Mart located at 900 West Roger Road with the intent to rob the convenience store.  He had a weapon and demanded money from the clerk.

The clerk got a hold of the phone to call 911 and the suspect went around the counter and hit her in the head with his gun.
