The first suspect is described as a Hispanic male with a thin build around 5 feet 8 inches tall. Officers estimate he’s about 15-18 years of age and 110-130 pounds. He was last seen wearing a light blue and white face covering, a blue hoodie with “Yankees” on it, black sweat pants and “Jordan 11 Concord” basketball shoes.
