CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Police are looking for a man who they say walked into a hospital clinic in Charlotte and stole gaming systems used by pediatric cancer patients.
The incident happened Saturday, Dec. 4., at Medical Center Plaza which is an office building located on the Carolinas Medical Center campus.
According to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department, the treatment center was closed at the time and none of the children came in contact with the thief.
On Thursday, CMPD released two surveillance pictures of the suspect standing in the hallway at the medical building.
The suspect was wearing a toboggan which appeared to be blue or purple. He was also wearing glasses, a thick black coat and had a back pack.
Police say they hope to find the man and the stolen gaming systems so the children will be able to continue using them while receiving treatment for their illnesses.
If you recognize the man pictured, call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
