The suspect is described as a white male between 30 and 40 years old, weighing 175 pounds. He was reportedly wearing jeans, a short-sleeve shirt and had short hair with a receding hairline.

Satellite Beach Police said the suspect might have scratches near one or both of his eyes and possible bruises and/or lacerations on his right fist and hand.
