Phoenix police seek the public's help in identifying two suspects with ties to the Prescott area who were involved in an armed robbery and vehicle theft in north Phoenix in early May.

"At 11 p.m. on Tuesday, May 4, the two suspects forced their way into the male victim's vehicle at knifepoint," said Det. C. Wilson, of the violent crimes bureau robbery unit with the Phoenix Police Department. "While they held the suspect at knifepoint, they made him drive several miles, forced the victim to get money and take them to a Circle K."

Police obtained photos of the female suspect because she went into Circle K during the incident and used the victim's debit card, Wilson said. The woman is described as either a Caucasian or Hispanic female.

The male suspect is described as a Hispanic male, about 5'5", weighing 180 pounds, with short brown or black hair.

The male suspect may be a friend or boyfriend of the female suspect, Wilson said.

Afterward, the suspects drove the victim to an isolated area in north Phoenix, beat him up badly, left him there in just his underwear, and stole his vehicle, Wilson said.

The victim walked home and called police, Wilson said.

The victim's vehicle was later found in Prescott and the driver, who was not one of the armed robbery suspects, was arrested, Wilson said.

If you have any information about the identity of the suspects or the armed robbery, call Det. C. Wilson at the Phoenix Police Department at (602) 534-0200.
