St. Mary Sheriff’s Office hoping to ID man who punched woman in parking lot on New Years Eve

ST MARY’S COUNTY, MD – Police in St. Mary’s County are trying to ID a suspect from a video camera that apparently has been in use since the 1980s due to its low quality.  From the screen capture provided by police, the man appears to be either Johnny Cage from the Super Nintendo version of the game or the main character from the 80’s arcade cabinet, Rolling Thunder.

Either, way the man pictured here is wanted on a very serious crime.  He assaulted a woman in the parking lot of a liquor store on New Year’s Eve.

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the identity of the person shown in an assault investigation. On Thursday, Dec. 31, 2020 at 9:30 pm, the driver of a gray Nissan assaulted a female in the parking lot of ABC Liquors in California. The suspect opened the victim’s car door, struck her in the face several times and pulled the victim from the vehicle. The male passenger from the suspect’s car grabbed the suspect and they fled in the gray Nissan.

The suspect is described as a black female, 5’2” tall, having a medium to light complexion, short reddish/maroon colored hair, wearing glasses and wearing a black North Face coat. The male is described as a black male, 5’7” tall, having a medium to light complexion and wearing a black North Face coat.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect or this incident is asked to call Deputy Nicholas Hill at 301-475-4200, ext. 78078 or email nicholas.hill@stmarysmd.com.
