Henderson police are asking for the public's help in catching the suspect in a shopping center robbery.

Officers say a man posing as a construction worker told a female employee at Cricket Wireless near Sunset and Stephanie that he was there to check the gas.

When there were no customers in the store, police say the suspect demanded the woman to lock herself in the bathroom.

Hearing about the crime made some shoppers uneasy.

"It's a crazy thing," said Aaron Hart, a man applying for a job at the Cricket store. "It blows my mind, man. This world is crazy."

The suspect got away with cash register boxes and some money.

No one was injured.
