Clad in a bright green motorcycle helmet, police say a man held up a Pueblo roofing company, then escaped on a dirt bike.

The armed robbery occurred shortly before 1 p.m. Wednesday at the RCI Roofing on North Freeway. It happened quickly: the suspect walked into the business holding a gun, stole money, then drove off on his bike. Surveillance footage captured the suspect walking away from the shop in his helmet, black jacket and jeans.

Witnesses told police they saw the suspect heading north on the frontage road. He may have last been seen driving west on 29th Street. Police say he was on a green dirt bike, possibly a Kawasaki.

Very little in the way of a description has been provided; police say the suspect may be Hispanic, and is about 5-foot-6.
