Police are looking for a 52-year-old Newark man suspected of trying to rip a gold chain off the neck of a pregnant woman last month.

The woman, who was seven months pregnant, was walking down the 400 block of Market Street around 11:30 a.m. May 8 with another woman and a child when a man approached them and tried to steal the chain. Both women struggled with the man, who punched the other woman in the face before fleeing the scene on foot.

Sharod Fields (pictured) has been identified as the suspect and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Police are asking the public’s help locating Shields. Anyone with information is asked to call the police department's 24-hour Crime Stopper tip line at 1-877-NWK-TIPS (1-877-695-8477) or 1-877-NWK-GUNS (1-877695-4867).
