Description: male, white, 6’3″ tall, thin, wearing black clothing.

Five hours later, a man described as a male, white with a shaved head, wearing a black, white and blue printed sweatshirt was reportedly leaning on a building and, oh, you know, at Broadway and Cornelia.

All Ash, No Cash

Simply Strange
You don’t hear offender descriptions like this one very often.

The man, described as being black, thin, and 5’11” tall was last seen peddling away on a bike in a neck brace and a blue nurse’s uniform.
