LANCASTER, Pa. - (FOX NEWS) - Pennsylvania police were able to issue an arrest warrant for a man identified after a sketch of him circulated, and was mocked among social media users.
A witness drew an image of a suspected thief — who police believe to be Hunt Phuoc Nguyen, 44, — and submitted it to Lancaster City Police, which then released the “cartoonish” picture alongside a detailed description on Tuesday.
Authorities said the suspect, believed to be Asian or South American, was around 5 feet 4 inches tall, and between 30 to 40 years of age. Police said the suspect had black hair and wide cheekbones.
"We released all of those details together in our police log in the hope that someone recognizes the suspect," officials said, according to Lancaster Online. "This was not done in jest."
