At the time the suspect was described to police as a Caucasian male in his thirties, standing approximately 5 foot 7 inches tall. He was seen wearing light blue jeans, a black hoodie with white lettering underneath a black windbreaker jacket, a grey and white baseball hat and a pair of white shoes.
