Police are seeking assistance with identifying and locating the suspect, who is described as “short in stature” with a “thin build” and was wearing all black. Police could not specify if the suspect is male or female.

Anyone who lives in the area of East Main Street, such as Palmer Street or Erie Street, and has a doorbell camera or other security system is asked to check for any movement between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m. Thursday morning.
