Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a man who threatened a gas station clerk with a knife in Phoenix and stole a cigar display. 

On May 7 around 10:30 p.m, a gas station clerk at the Mobil gas station near 51st Avenue and Indian School Road asked a customer to leave after he started acting erratically.

The man is captured on surveillance pulling out a knife and threatening the clerk before he ends up leaving. On his way out, he is seen grabbing a cigar display and exits the store. 

The man is described as 20 to 24-years-old and weighing around 150-170 pounds. He was not wearing a shirt but was wearing dark colored shorts, a red baseball cap, and red sneakers. 

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Phoenix Police Department or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
