The suspect is described as a white male between 25 and 30 years old, approximately 5'8" with a medium build, and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, gray sweatpants, dark sunglasses, and gloves.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect's identity is asked to contact Detective Lawrence D. Ferreira of the Fall River Police Department at 508-324-2796 or the anonymous tip line at 508-672-TIPS (8477).
