The Fort Wayne Police Department needs the public's assistance in identifying a suspect who entered a T-Mobile store at about 12:20 p.m. Feb. 28 at 10140 Maysville Road and told the employee his wife's phone was in the store's safe, according to a police report. The employee recognized the suspect as the same person who allegedly shoplifted a pair of Beats brand headphones the weekend before. 

The employee walked to the back room to call 911. When the suspect followed the employee, with his hand in his pocket as if he had a weapon and again demanded the employee open the safe, the employee told the man he called 911.

The suspect exited the store and fled in a 1990s Lincoln Continental with an Indiana plate bearing a handicap designation. There was a black woman sitting in the passenger seat.

The suspect is described as a 6-foot to 6-foot-3 black man in his early 50s with a medium to heavy build. He wore a black coat, black fedora-style hat.

Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 436-7867.
