PCSD is Searching For Someone Who Robbed A Woman at Knifepoint While Wearing a Demon Mask

Posted By on Tue, Apr 23, 2013 at 6:16 PM

After spending all day processing this as best as I could, I now feel confident in telling you that this is the weirdest story of a robbery I've seen in quite some time.

According to a release from the Pima County Sheriff's Department, a woman was robbed at the Bank of America drive-through ATM near Thornydale Road and Linda Vista Boulevard by a man wielding a knife and wearing a demon-esque mask.

Detectives from the Sheriff’s Criminal Investigations Division ... learned from the victim that earlier that night, she had deposited her paycheck and also wanted to withdraw some money from the drive-through ATM.
While she was still seated in her car, a male individual wearing a Halloween mask appeared. The suspect said something to the victim, but she was not able to understand as she only speaks Spanish. She also described the suspect held a knife that was possibly a larger folding knife.

The woman then pulled her arm into her car and drove away. As she drove, she looked back to see that the robber was trying to use the ATM (which likely resulted in his shining visage being displayed as prominently as it is above). According to the release, her account (and her money) were unharmed.

The Sheriff's Department is still searching for the man. Surveillance footage makes it appear as if the suspected robber was a male wearing dark clothing, with light skin, dark hair and a green demon mask with purple horns.

He should stick out in a crowd.

If you happen to have any information, PCSD asks that you call 911 or 88-CRIME with your tips.
