Windsor Police are searching for a suspect after an attempted theft of an unmarked police car.
Police say that around 1pm Thursday afternoon, a plain clothes Windsor Police officer was parked in a parking lot located in the 1500 block of Huron Church Road. The officer was seated in the driver’s seat of an unmarked police vehicle with dark tinted windows.
An unknown male suddenly pulled open the driver’s door of the police vehicle in an apparent theft attempt. A brief struggle ensued and the suspect fled the area towards Tecumseh Road.
Police searched the area with negative results. It was later learned that the suspect was captured on video at a nearby store.
The suspect is pictured above and is described as a male white in his early to mid 20’s, with a medium build, 5’9″-5’10”, brown hair, wearing prescription eye glasses. He has a light complexion and was wearing a black baseball cap with teal brim, a dark green wool jacket with black or dark green leather sleeves with the words 1999 Can-Am possibly written on the front of the jacket. He was also wearing blue jeans with tan or beige boots. Under his green jacket, the male was wearing a white sweater and hoodie and the hoodie had what appeared to be a black camouflage pattern.
