The Chandler Police Department is searching for a man who robbed a Metro PCS store in January.

The incident happened on January 13 around 5:30 p.m. near Arizona Avenue and Frye Road.

Police say the suspect entered the store with a knife and demanded money. The man was wearing a black baseball cap, black hat and white bandana covering his face. He was also wearing a maroon colored long sleeve shirt, blue jeans, black shoes and black gloves.

"As soon as I see him coming in, he was pulling something out of his pocket; I ran to the back," the victim told ABC15. 

The suspect then threatened to kill the victim if they attempted to call anyone.

"I still feel threatened now because he's still out there," the person explained. "Then, for him to say he was going to kill me — it's scary." 

The suspect was seen taking money from both registers before running out of the store. 

A witness told ABC15 they saw the suspect running away after the robbery.

"I seen a man come running this way and drop a wad of money on the floor and he picked it all up and ran that way before getting into an SUV," the person explained.
