Batavia police are on the lookout for a suspect in a knife-related event in Batavia this morning.
The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 25 years of age, with shaggy blond hair and wearing a black t-shirt, gray jeans and black shoes.
Police were dispatched to the 100 block of Shumway Avenue in Batavia at about 10:39 AM to address a report of a subject threatening people with a knife. It was reported that a male subject confronted two construction workers who were working in the area.

One of the construction workers was able to capture some pictures of the suspect. Batavia Police are seeking the assistance of the public in identifying this subject. If you observe this subject do not approach him and call 9-1-1 immediately.
Subject is believed to be armed and dangerous.
