PIMA COUNTY, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - Deputies are looking for a man who robbed a woman waiting outside a Circle K for a ride home.

Deputy Tom Peine with the Pima County Sheriff's Department tells KGUN9 that a woman was waiting outside the Circle K at 5365 N. La Cholla Blvd. for her daughter to pick her up, because she felt she drank too much to drive home.

While waiting, Peine says a man approached the woman, spoke with her for a bit, and then grabbed her purse and ran off toward the vehicle he had driven up in.

The car left southbound on La Cholla Boulevard.

Detectives have identified the suspect vehicle in surveillance video as an older model white Honda Civic wagon.

The man who stole the purse had light complexion and was wearing a dark gray or black shirt, black pants and a black baseball cap.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
