TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - The Tucson Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying three suspects in a Nov. 2017 robbery at a Taco Bell near Craycroft and I-10.

According to a TPD news release on Nov. 24, 2017 the two suspects drove to the Taco Bell drive-thru window at 5570 East Travel Plaza Way and after an employee opened the window the driver pointed a handgun and demanded money from the register.

When the employee walked away from the window the male suspect climbed through the window and into the store.  According to TPD the suspect then grabbed a male employee and demanded he open the register.  At the same time the female suspect appeared at the window with a wooden baton, she then leaned in and attempted to hit an employee with the baton.

The male suspect climbed back through the window after the employee wasn't able to get the register open quick enough.  The two suspects then fled the scene in an unknown vehicle.

A third suspect was seen standing outside the vehicle armed with a handgun, according to TPD.

TPD detectives have followed up on leads in this case, but have been unable to positively identify the suspects involved.

Suspect #1 is described as a white male, with dark hair, a thin build, and has tattoos on top of his right forearm, just above the wrist.

Suspect #2 is described as a white female, with a heavy build and long blond hair.

There was no description of the third suspect other than a male with a handgun.

Anyone with information about who these individuals may be is urged to call 88-CRIME. You CAN remain anonymous.
