TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Deputies need help finding a man who robbed a Circle K at gunpoint Monday.

Deputy Tom Peine with the Pima County Sheriff's Department tells KGUN9 that a man entered a Circle K at 4605 W. Valencia Rd. on Monday and asked to buy cigarettes.

The man then brought out a handgun and demanded the cigarettes and cash.

Peine says the suspect could not wait for the cash and jumped over the counter and continued his threats.

The clerk gave the robber $50 and then the robber left the store with the cash and cigarettes.

He is described as a white man between 25 and 30 years old, about 5'8'' to 5'10'' tall with a thin build, scruffy beard and sideburns.

Anyone who can identify the robber or has any other information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
