The suspect is described as light-skinned, approximately 5 feet 7 inches in height, with short dark hair and a medium build. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black sweatpants and grey sneakers.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit
