PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Police are looking for a man they said punched the driver of a car and then stole his automobile in Tempe on Aug. 27.

The suspect grabbed the 22-year-old driver by the neck, punched him on the side of the head and took the victim's keys, wallet and cell phone about 7:15 p.m. in a parking lot at 2714 W. Southern Ave., according to police.

The suspect then stole the car, which was found about a week later near 48th Street and Broadway Road, according to police.

The victim's credit card was also used at a Walmart at 35th Avenue and Bethany Home Road in Phoenix.

Police said the suspect is black, in his late teens or early 20s, 6' tall, thin build and with a black "fade" style haircut. He was wearing a red T-shirt with black sleeves and a white logo on the left arm, green athletic shorts and black tennis shoes.

The suspect could face charges of aggravated robbery and vehicle theft.

Anyone with information about the suspect or crime is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-948-6377, or toll free at 1-800-343-8477.

Silent Witness is offering up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and/or indictment of the suspect.
