If anyone was on church street the night of nov 25th and recall Tess or this group of people please contact the police. That’s a very busy street after the bars close so somebody saw this suspect. He is described as having light skin, between 5’7″ and 6′ with a slim build and dark hair, wearing a dark jacket and lighter pants. Please take the time to read the article above and help us find this monster.
