Silent Witness is asking for the public's help in identifying a man who allegedly punched a 15-year-old in the face to steal his cell phone. 

Authorities say the altercation happened on the morning of April 12 at a Circle K near 19th and Peoria avenues. 

Silent Witness said the teenager was standing outside the Circle K when the suspect came up to him, took his cell phone and punched him in the face. 

The suspect then fled in a white Chevy Trailblazer (2000 model year) that was being driven by another man, according to authorities. 

Silent Witness describes the suspect as a white man with a thin build between 25-35 years of age, having a shaved head and tattoos covering both arms. 

If you have any information on the identity of this man or this incident you are asked to call 480-WITNESS.
