“When we arrived the suspect had already fled the scene,” Betters said.

Police received information that a truck matching a description they had released earlier was seen nearby at Petco on Stillwater Avenue, but after investigating further officers realized it was not the same vehicle.

Police plan to release surveillance footage of the suspect Wednesday evening. Betters said that if people see the vehicle or the suspect, they should call the Detective Dustin Dow at 207-947-7384 ext. 5737 at the Bangor Police Department.

“If someone sees him, we don’t want them to approach those people,” Betters said. “We’d like to know where they are.”
