Waco Police are looking for an armed robbery suspect who is accused of stealing cigarettes, cash and a 40 ounce bottle of beer at the Amigo Food Mart in the 2000 block of Speight Ave.

Police said the suspect wearing sunglasses and dressed in all black with a light blue hat and light blue shoes pointed a gun at the clerk around 12:45 p.m. on Thursday. He got away with 10 to 15 packs of cigarettes, up to $300 and a beer.

Employees at the Off the Top Barbershop chased the man but lost sight of him as he kept running west.

Barber Carlos Canales recorded video of the suspect as he chased the suspect.

"It was just adrenaline, it could've been us so we just wanted to help out. We didn't want to leave him out there like that and we wanted to get a good view of him so we could get a good description of him," Canales said.

Police said surveillance video and the video the employees at the barbershop took helped them get a better description of the subject.

The case is still under investigation. If you have any information, contact Waco Police.
