Silent Witness is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a man who robbed the Mayer Circle K Store on Feb. 20.
YCSO detectives continue to investigate the robbery and are working leads, many originating from calls to Yavapai Silent Witness, said Sheriff's spokesman Dwight D'Evelyn. Detectives are encouraging those who have called Silent Witness previously, to call again with any updates or new information regarding the suspect's identity or whereabouts.
Deputies received the call about the robbery just before 3 a.m. on Feb. 20 and arrived on the scene within five minutes, said D'Evelyn. The clerk on duty told deputies a man wearing a motorcycle helmet approached him inside the store and said, "Don't make me shoot you man. Open the register."
After his statement, the suspect placed his right hand in a pocket as if gripping a firearm, D'Evelyn said. The clerk complied and opened the register drawer. The suspect then removed the complete cash tray with an undisclosed amount of money, and ordered the clerk into the bathroom. The clerk eventually was able to call the Sheriff's Office.
The suspect is described as a male, wearing a motorcycle type helmet (see accompanying photo), blue jeans, and a white long sleeved shirt - similar to a thermal shirt. Over the long sleeved shirt, the suspect wore a black t-shirt with the word "QuikSilver" written across the front. The suspect was also wearing gloves and had long hair tied in a ponytail. His height is estimated between 5'07" and 5' 09," weight approximately 160 pounds, with an age range between 18 and 28 years. D'Evelyn said the suspect also had what appeared as purple makeup or a birth mark exposed below the helmet on his neck.
The clerk did not see or hear a vehicle.
