Colorful suspect descriptions always brighten up our day. The good folks in Uptown provided us with yet another one Monday evening.
A security guard who tried to apprehend a shoplifter at the Uptown Target store around 6:15PM backed off when the offender brandished a utility knife with a "five- to six-inch blade," according to police.
Male, black, dressed as a woman. 40 years old, very thin, wearing a women's three-quarter length beige faux fur, skin tight blue jeans, long brown hair, a skull cap, lots of stubble, and carrying a tan purse. Also, he has the guard's handcuffs attached to his left wrist.
CPD case #HW573201
