The clerk told officers that the suspect, a man, entered the store carrying a navy colored bag and armed with a rifle, the news release states. He then ordered the clerk to put money from the cash register into the bag. The clerk complied and the suspect left with an unknown amount of cash.

“The suspect fled the area in what appeared to be a white Nissan Altima four-door sedan. The vehicle had darkly tinted windows and had damage to the left rear quarter panel and left rear wheel well,” Bonney stated. “The suspect disguised his face with a bandana and sunglasses. He was wearing a gray ‘Ecko Unltd’ hooded sweatshirt, light colored pants and white shoes.”

He appeared to be approximately 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 and of medium build.

The suspect should be considered dangerous and, if seen, the public is warned not to approach but to call 911 immediately with any information they have.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Hanna at the Prescott Police Department at 928-777-1961 and callers who wish to remain anonymous and want a cash reward must call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232.
