The suspect escaped from the area and was last seen speeding down Queen Street in a gray four-door sedan. He is described as a white male in his 40s and approximately 230 pounds. He was wearing a gray University of Massachusetts tee shirt, as well as black shorts, white sneakers and a yellow wristband.
