Harbor Division detectives this week released a surveillance photo in hopes of identifying a man who stole a bottle of cologne, and pulled a knife on a security officer who attempted to stop him at Target in San Pedro.

According to a police report, the man, described as Latino, about 30 years old, 5 feet 7 inches tall and 180 pounds, entered the Target store at 1701 N. Gaffey Street, and stole a $44.49 bottle of eau de toilette and two USB drives.

The man, who was caught not only on surveillance video, but by a Target loss prevention officer, had short black hair and wore a blue T-shirt and blue jeans.

The incident took place at 6:50 p.m. on Jan. 18, according to a police report, which stated that a loss prevention officer watched the man walk into the electronics section and take “two Lexar USB flashdrives.”

The man then proceeded to the cosmetics section, where he took a bottle of cologne, removed it from the package and placed it in his back pocket before proceeding past the checkout and to the door.

The police report states that the loss prevention officer approached the man from behind, while still inside the Target store, and ordered him to stop.

“Target security, stop,” the loss prevention officer said.

The suspect proceeded to the door, ignoring orders, when the prevention officer grabbed him. It was at this time that the suspect pulled a “3-incih-long black pocketknife,” the reported stated.

The offense, which would have been a misdemeanor theft, was then moved to the felony robbery category, which could result in prison time.

“It is  a felony with a weapon because of the force or fear the suspect used,” Harbor Division Detective David Cortez said. “It was the knife that pushed it over from a theft to robbery.”

The Harbor Division asks anyone with information about the suspect or anyone who can identify the suspect to contact Cortez at 310-726-7755.
