Deputies: Help ID man who attempted strong-arm robbery at Walmart

Authorities are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who allegedly tried to steal a cart full of items from a Walmart on the South Side, and fought with an employee who tried to stop him.

Thursday evening, a man in his 20s tried to take a cart filled with merchandise from the Walmart Neighborhood Market, 2823 West Valencia Rd., "when he was confronted by several employees," a Pima County Sheriff's Department spokesman said.

The man "assaulted at least one employee before fleeing to a dark-colored, possibly green, Saturn passenger car," Deputy Cody Gress said.

The items the man allegedly attempted to steal were recovered in the cart by employees after the incident, which took place around 7 p.m., Gress said.

The man is described as a dark-skinned Hispanic or light-skinned African American, 20-30 years old. He has short dark hair and possibly facial hair, Gress said.

He was last seen wearing a black t-shirt with a picture on the front, black pants and white shoes.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call 911. "You can also submit an anonymous tip, with the potential for a reward, by text, phone, or by going to 88-CRIME.org," Gress said.
