Gainesville police are searching for a man accused of stabbing another person at a CVS.
At 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, UF Public Safety sent out an alert about the incident at the store located at 1621 SW 13th St.
The suspect has not been located, Gainesville Police Department spokesperson Graham Glover said. He believes it was an isolated incident.
The public safety alert described the suspect as a Black male who is about 35 years old and about 5 feet, 9 inches or 5 feet, 10 inches. The man, who is estimated to weigh about 250 pounds with a medium build, wore a gray hoodie, black pants and a backpack, according to the alert. He has cornrows, a thin mustache and tattoos on both arms.
The university is required to send out “timely warning messages” under the Clery Act — a federal law that requires universities to notify students and faculty of campus threats, such as sexual assault and gun violence.
