Police said the man has a slim build — he is believed to be between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet and weighs about 160 to 170 pounds.

In the photos, the man is wearing a rain jacket from REI, sneakers with white laces, and dark-colored gloves. He has been seen covering his face with a medical mask as well as a full-face mask during the incidents, police said.
