Composite Sketch of Attempted Robbery Suspect is Released

Investigators with the Mesa County Sheriff's Office have released a composite sketch of a suspect they say attempted to rob a C & F food store in Clifton last Sunday. The suspect is described as a 21-to-25 year-old Hispanic male with light skin and brown eyes. He is about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs approximately 170 pounds. The man showed a gun and demanded money when he allegedly entered the store at 422 32 Road over the weekend. The clerk, however, refused to hand over any cash and was able to provide enough information for investigators to produce a composite sketch. Contact the Mesa County Sheriff's Office at 244–3500 if you have any information about this case.
