Newark Police officials request the public’s help with identifying a suspect who was captured on surveillance video taking a package from the front steps of a residence on June 22. 

The video shows the suspect, a Black male, riding a dark-colored bicycle in front of a home at approximately 10:50 a.m. in the 100 block of S. Munn Avenue. 

The suspect gets off the bicycle and takes the package, a pair of Adidas sneakers that cost $230.  

The suspect is described as 6’0” and 210 pounds with a bald head and facial hair and appears to be in his late 30s to mid-40s. 

He was wearing a hospital mask, an olive green sweatshirt with a hood, royal blue-colored pants, and dark-colored boots. He also had a black backpack and cellphone in his hand.
