The hat had a shiny sticker on the top part of the brim. Black zip-up sweater with a dark shirt underneath, three long silver or gold necklaces on top of shirt. Blue jeans, white shoes. Subject #1 is considerably shorter than suspect #2.

Suspect#2 is also a Caucasian male, around 6″ feet tall wearing a dark ball cap with a flash of green across the left side. Dark brown curly hair. Long sleeved white t-shirt with a design on the front and possibly “Billabong” across the chest, white pants and white shoes.
