Phoenix Robbery Gone Awry

Phoenix Police Searching for Robbery Suspect

Phoenix police say a person fired a shotgun inside a restaurant in north Phoenix during a robbery attempt.

Police received reports from the Chili’s Bar and Grill near Interstate 17 and Carefree Highway around 8 p.m. on Sunday after the suspect entered the eatery and fired at least one gunshot at the ceiling, a Phoenix police spokesperson said.

According to officials, the person was wearing a mask and left the area on an ATV shortly after the incident.

There were nearly 30 customers and up to 15 employees inside the restaurant at the time of the shooting, police said.

It’s unknown if the suspect took anything during the incident but he was taken into custody after being located at a nearby mobile home park, officials said.

People are asked to avoid the area until further notice.

No additional information was released. Police confirmed that no injuries were reported.

Phoenix Robber

Police are looking for a robber, armed with a hatchet and wearing a college sweatshirt, who is at large after demanding money from an Ahwatukee business on Sunday.

The Phoenix Police Department say shortly before 11 a.m. officers were called out to 48th Street and Warner Road after reports of an armed robbery. The investigation seemed to be centered around a Taco Bell restaurant in the area.

They say a man, who was wearing a red sweatshirt with the letters “USC” on them, entered the business and demanded he be given money; he was armed with a hatchet.

Police say he later fled on foot; no one was injured.

He’s described as a Caucasian man between the ages of 20 and 25 who was wearing a dark baseball hat and was also carrying a dark backpack at the time.

Police looked for the man in the nearby area but were unable to locate him.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect is encouraged to contact Phoenix police.
