Sheriffs looking for mint-throwing assault suspect

TUCSON - The Pima County Sheriff's Department is looking for a man who they say threw a pack of mints at an employee at a south side convenience store during an argument.

On May 11 at about 3 a.m., a man entered the Quik-Mart at 4280 E. Benson Highway and started to argue with an employee. The suspect became upset, picked up a pack of "Icebreakers" mints, and threw it at the employee, hitting him in the forehead, according to a news release from PCSD.

The suspect, described as a Hispanic man, roughly 20 years old, then left with a second Hispanic man in a red Mustang. The suspect appears to have a tattoo on the inside of his right forearm, and was last seen wearing a gray and black striped t-shirt, the news release states.

Anyone who can identify the suspect is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
