Police seek suspect in attempted marijuana holdup

DENVER (AP) - Denver police are looking for a man accused of pulling a gun on a woman while she waited for friends at a marijuana dispensary and demanding her medical marijuana.

Police spokesman Sonny Jackson says police are looking for 19-year-old Benny Cruz on charges of attempted murder, attempted aggravated robbery and felony menacing.

Police say the attempted robbery occurred on April 15. Police said the victim refused to hand over the marijuana and the suspect fled.

Jackson says Cruz was a passenger in car on April 17 when he fired a bullet into a vehicle that was occupied by three people.

There were no injuries.
