NORWOOD, Ohio -- Police are looking for the man who threw a large rock through the door of a store at a popular shopping center to steal bottles of perfume.

The incident occurred just before 1 a.m. on Nov. 5 at the Victoria's Secret in Rookwood Commons in Norwood.

In a video released by the Norwood Police Department, the suspect is shown walking up to the store carrying a large container and stopping in front of the store. He then pulls a large rock out of the container, throws it through the front door of the clothing store and enters the business.

The suspect then ran into the perfume section just inside the store and loaded a large plastic utility tub with merchandise, according to investigators. 

He was in the store for about a minute, police said.

The value of the merchandise taken was not released.

Investigators said a similar incident took place at the same store Sept. 19.

You're asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 513-352-3040 with any information.
