A lightning-fast armed home invasion Feb. 11 has Phoenix police asking for help to track down the suspect.

According to Sgt. Frank Matsko, a man was visiting a friend in the 5100 block of East Tamblo Drive around 1:30 p.m. when the robbery took place.

As he walked up to his friend’s home, the suspect followed behind and into the house.

He told the two that they owed him money and pulled a chrome semi-automatic handgun.

He quickly left with cash, wallets, cell phones as well as one of the man’s vehicles, a 1999 Mitsubishi.

“In and out, real quick,” Matsko said.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic male, 5 foot 7, 230 pounds, and with ink or a tattoo on his right ring-finger.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at (602) 262-6151.
