Investigators describe the suspect as a black male standing six feet tall with a thin build. He was wearing a blue hooded windbreaker jacket, a black mask, light gray gloves with black palms, and dark-colored pants.

He was also carrying a black bag with orange trim on the top. Police say it could be a lunch bag or cooler.
