Police in Union are looking for a man who allegedly threatened a worker with a knife at the township's animal shelter on Jefferson Avenue Thursday, the department said in a statement. 

The man, seen here in a police sketch, confronted the employee around 9 a.m., making threatening remarks before showing the knife, the victim told police. After she locked herself inside the building, the man left, likely fleeing into the wooded area behind the shelter, police said. 

The man is about 5'10". Anyone who recognizes the person depicted in the sketch is asked to call Det. Dominic Nuzzo at 908-851-5030. He can also be reached at DNuzzo@uniontownship.com
