New Canaan Police Unveil Sketch of Bat Suspect

NEW CANAAN, Conn. – New Canaan police have released a sketch of the man suspected of threatening a woman last week with a bat and stealing a bag of candles.

The suspect is a white male between 5 feet 9 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 110 to 120 pounds with olive skin, short black hair, brown eyes and thick eyebrows, Sgt. Carol Ogrinc said.

The man approached a woman who had just left her car on Millport Avenue just after 9:30 p.m. Feb. 8 and demanded money, police said. The man threatened to hit her with an aluminum bat he was carrying if she did not give him money, police said.

After the woman told the man that she had no money, police said the man grabbed a bag inside the vehicle and ran toward Lakeview Avenue. The bag contained candles valued at $25. The woman was not injured.

Police said the suspect, who was wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, did not speak with an accent.

Anyone with information on this incident should call New Canaan Police at 203-594-3500.
