Detroit police are searching for a man they said stole several dozen razors from a Rite Aid on the city’s west side.

The Detroit Police Department Friday released video from the Sept. 23 incident as well as still images of the suspect who entered the store in the 18400 block of Fenkell at about 5 a.m.

The surveillance footage shows the man — wearing a black jacket, white T-shirt and dark pants — heading down an aisle then lifting items from a top section.

When a clerk checked on him, “she noticed that the suspect was cutting expensive razors from the security shelf with a box cutter,” police said.

A camera captured the worker confronting the man, who “threatened the victim, continued removing the items, then fled the location on foot towards Grand River,” according to the release.

In all, he left with 45 Gillette Fusion razors, officials said.

The suspect is described as an African-American male in his 30s, 5-foot-9, weighing about 120 pounds.

Anyone who has seen him, knows his whereabouts or has information about the theft is asked to call the Eighth Precinct Investigation Unit at (313) 596-5840.
