Robberies in Phoenix seem to be a seemingly odd occurrence in Phoenix. Of course, robberies can happen anywhere.

Police are searching for a man that was seen in a surveillance video of a robbery in May 13th. The robbery was of a Metro PCS store which was in Phoenix.

According to a Silent Witness’ statement, the man walked into the store just before 9:30 in the morning. The store was located at 32nd Street and Greenway Road. The man then proceeded to pull out a gun and escorted two employees into the back room. Must have been an extremely scary situation for the two employees.

Sgt. James Rothschild’s Statement About the Robbery:

He doesn’t just steal the money and leave right afterwards.


According to reports, the man actually lingered in the business. He then placed the gun to the head of one of the victims. The suspect then ordered the employees to crawl on their hands and knees to the back of the building before he ran out the front door.

Police got reports that the man was last seen running south from the PCS store.

The male’s description is described as a Hispanic male. He is estimated at 5 ft 11 inches tall at around 160 pounds. The man reportedly had acne on his face as well as a ponytail. At the time he was wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

Police are asking that if anyone has any information about this robbery then please call the local police or Silent Witness at (480) WITNESS. There are rewards being offered for any information that could help in his arrest.
