Authorities are looking for a man who stole a cell phone from a wireless store last month.

Police said the man walked into the Cricket Wireless store near 36th Street and McDowell around 2:15 p.m. on April 21.

The man told the clerk he wanted to buy two Samsung Galaxy S7 phones and a service plan. While the employee was showing him the phone, police said he shoved the clerk and ran out of the store with the phone.

Phoenix police said the suspect said "I need the money, sorry," to the employee as he left.

The suspect is described as a man in his early 20s, about 6' 1" tall and 180 pounds.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
