----------ORIGINAL STORY---------

The Pueblo County Sheriff's Office identified a suspect in an attempted robbery case.

Authorities shared a photo of 26-year-old Stefan Arrellano Tuesday evening. An arrest warrant was issued for him and he may be tied to multiple robberies.

The attempted robbery happened on Aug. 28 at the Dollar Tree in Pueblo West at 1024 Market Plaza. Employees told the sheriff's office a man with a red bandana covering his face threatened them with a knife and demanded money. The employees refused and the suspect left the store.
