TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Deputies are looking for a man who robbed a Circle K store Monday wearing a hooded jacket that had a picture of the Virgin Mary of Guadalupe on the back.

Deputy Tom Peine with the Pima County Sheriff's Department tells KGUN9 that deputies responded to the Circle K at 3280 W. Valencia Rd about 8:40 p.m. on Monday night after reports of an armed robbery.

The clerk told deputies that a masked man had taken out a handgun and demanded money. He was given an undisclosed amount of cash and left the store.

He was wearing a dark, hooded jacket with the Virgin Mary of Guadalupe on the back, and a red bandanna covering his face.

He is described as Hispanic, and between 18 and 25 years old.

Detectives believe this man may be involved in two other armed robberies in Tucson.

Anyone with information on this man's whereabouts is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
