Pittsburgh police are seeking assistance identifying a suspect seen on video surveillance during an April robbery at an Oakland Gamestop.

A man in his 20s, armed with a handgun, entered Gamestop at 3608 Forbes Ave. shortly after 11 a.m. April 20, asking to see Xbox games, police spokeswoman Sonya Toler said at the time of the robbery.

After giving employees a name that didn't show up in the store's customer database, the man pulled out a handgun and made off with a $400 Xbox console and a $60 game. No one was hurt.

Anyone with information on the man's identity, contact Detective Rich Baumgart or Detective Nick Bobbs at 412-255-7151.
