Police are asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect.

He is described as a South Asian male in his late 20s to mid 40s who spoke with an accent and is between five feet eight and five feet ten inches tall with brown eyes and a dark well-groomed beard. 

He was wearing dark coloured pants and a light coloured shirt with a white turban.
