The suspect was wearing clear eyeglasses, a black with red trim Chicago Bulls number 33 jersey, blue jeans, and red shoes.

The suspect vehicle was a black SUV with chrome molding on the side and black wheels. The SUV appeared to have a luggage rack, and the right front fender looked to have black primer paint (see below).
