The suspect is described as between 20 to 30 years old, of medium build and between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-10, with a Mohawk-style hair cut, according to police. He was seen wearing jeans and a dark jacket with a red stripe on the sleeves.
The bicycle was silver with a metal basket attached to the rear.
