The man was described as a black man about 47 years old, standing 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-8 with a heavy build, police said. He has a light complexion and a tattoo that reads “LIFE” or “LIVE” on his chest.
He was wearing a black and red jacket, blue jeans, blue underwear and black and red shoes, police said.
