In a “seeking to identify” bulletin issued Saturday afternoon, Area Three detectives said the incident happened around 2:26 p.m. on January 13 outside Yeshivas Tiferes Tzvi Academy, 6317 North California, in West Ridge.

Police said the man yelled obscenities and “all of you should be killed” at “young students” and a teacher as he walked past the school.

The suspect is about six feet tall and is in his 40s, according to the bulletin.

Anyone with information about the man can contact Detective Rodriguez at 312-744-8261.

It is not clear why the bulletin was not released until February 5 when, according to CPD records, the police report was filed on January 14.
