Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office is looking for a suspect who robbed a Hillsborough Circle K last week.

At about 12:58 a.m. on Nov. 25, the suspect entered the Circle K at 10111 W. Hillsborough Ave. with a wooden handled kitchen knife and confronted the clerk.

The suspect ordered the clerk to open the drawer, and took cash out.  He then forced the clerk into the office and grabbed a few packs of cigarettes on his way out.

The victim said the suspect mostly spoke in Spanish, and described him as:

  • A Hispanic Male
  • 18-21 years of age
  • 140-150 lbs
  • Brown curly hair
  • Thin chinstrap beard
  • Wearing a red hooded sweatshirt, sunglasses, red athletic shorts and black and white athletic shoes
  • Wearing black "Mechanix" brand gloves with beaded grips

Anyone with information regarding the suspect is asked to call Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office or Crime Stoppers.
