Evansville police are looking for a suspect in an armed robbery. 

According to a police report, that robbery happened Wednesday night near Oak Hill Cemetery, while someone was trying to sell the suspect a cell phone. 

The victim told police they handed the cell phone over, but instead of paying, the suspect pulled a handgun and said, "I'm sorry I have to do this, but the phone is mine now."

Police used a K-9 officer to track the suspect, but have not found him so far.

Anyone with information about what happened is asked to call the Evansville Police Department at (812) 436-7979 or the WeTip line at 1-800-78-CRIME.
