Authorities in Newark are seeking the public's help identifying a man who they say aimed a gun at a worker at Family Dollar on Thursday night.
A man pointed a handgun at a worker at Family Dollar Store on the 800 block of North 6th Street around 6:40 p.m., Newark Public Safety Director Anthony F. Ambrose said in a release.
The man — who had previously acted hostile toward the store’s employees — left the store and ran toward Bloomfield, Ambrose said.
The man, pictured above, is 5 feet 6 inches tall and has a thin build, a medium brown complexion, a tattoo over his right eye and a gash over his left eye, authorities said.
He was wearing a black jacket, shoes and denim jeans during the incident, authorities said.
