Suspect sought in 2 East Side robberies

Tucson police are looking for a man suspected of robbing two East Side businesses in the last week.

On Friday, the suspect entered Mario's Pizza, 6330 E. Golf Links Rd., at around 2:35 p.m., showed the cashier a handgun and demanded money. He fled the restaurant with an undisclosed amount of money through the rear delivery door and headed south, said TPD spokeswoman Sgt. Maria Hawke.

The second robbery occurred Monday when the suspect walked into Jack in the Box, 6380 E. Golf Links Rd., and forced an employee at gunpoint to open the safe in the manager's office. He left the restaurant and was last seen running south. A cashier was able to activate the robbery alarm to alert police, Hawke said.

The man is described as Hispanic with short brown hair, 18 to 22 years old, 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 8 inches tall, and weighing between 150 to 200 pounds. In both robberies, he was wearing a light gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and black tennis shoes. He was wearing glasses during the Mario's Pizza robbery, Hawke said.

Anyone with information, should call 911 or 88-CRIME.
