Phoenix police are looking for an armed robbery suspect who tied up and gagged up a woman working at a tax business Wednesday.

Authorities say the victim had just got back from the bank when the suspect came in to the business near 33rd Street and Indian School and pulled a gun on her.

The suspect tied up and gagged the woman before he reportedly took off her bra and tried to assault her.

Police say when the suspect noticed the security cameras, he stopped and took off with the money.

The suspect is being described as Hispanic or Native American, 6 feet tall, wearing white gloves and a black hoodie.

Officers say the surveillance video did its job and prevented something worse from happening.

Investigators are checking to see if the cameras were functional.
