Portland Police Bureau detectives need the public's help in identifying a suspect that stole a puppy outside a Northeast Portland grocery store.

On April 11, 2011, at approximately 2:40 p.m., a man took an 11-week-old English Bulldog puppy that was tied up outside the Safeway store, located at 5920 Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.

A friend of the dog's owner walked to Safeway and tied the puppy up out front and was in the store for a few minutes but when he came out, the dog was gone. Surveillance video shows the suspect walk up to the dog, pet it, then walk away. The suspect then comes back and unties the dog and picks it up before quickly walking out of sight eastbound on Northeast Ainsworth Street.

The suspect is described as a black male, 25-40 years old, 5'06"- 5'8", medium complexion, wearing a black zip-up hooded sweatshirt, a white t-shirt, a maroon baseball cap with a yellow or gold bill, and light colored blue jeans.

The puppy, named "Daisy Mae Duke", is brown and white in color wearing a black collar with red paw prints.

Under Oregon law, theft of a companion animal is a Class C Felony.

Anyone with information about the suspect or Daisy Mae Duke's whereabouts is urged to contact Sergeant Scott Montgomery at (503) 823-5796.
