ANNE ARUNDEL COUNTY, Md. — Police are looking for a man who may have used a syringe stick to poke a woman as she was walking through an Anne Arundel store.

Last Tuesday, police were notified of an assault that occurred at 5570 Shady Side Road in Churchton.

A woman said she was poked with a possible syringe while walking into a store.

Video surveillance was pulled and a man approximately 50-years-old is seen behind the victim entering the store.

The suspect appears to use his right hand to pull something out of his jacket, and poke the woman's buttocks. She immediately reacts, at which point the suspect turns around and exchanges words with the victim.

Medical treatment was sought and a syringe stick, can not be ruled out at this time.

Southern District Detectives are investigating and are asking anyone with any information to call 410-222-1960 or the TipLine 410-222-4700.
