Sketch From Victim Leads To Arrest Of Alleged Pennsylvania Theft

1518053434335We recently discussed an arrest that was made using the sketch of a homeless victim.  In Pennsylvania, a witness drew the sketch above and it was circulated by police.  While ridiculed by many, it led to the arrest of Hunt Phuoc Nguyen, 44, by Lancaster City Police.

The suspect was described as Asian or South American and around 5 feet 4 inches tall.  He was also believed to be between 30 to 40 years of age with black hair and wide cheekbones.

The sketch reminded an investigator of a potential suspect. When the picture of the suspect was used in a photo line up, the victim of the theft picked out Nguyen.

  1. Wait, the homeless man told them he sketched an Asian person, so police recognized Hunt Phuoc Nguyen. But the photo does not look like an Asian man at all.

  2. I posted this before, but another homeless man, this one in San Francisco, swears he was rousted out by someone who looks like:

    I am not sure if they have caught the culprit yet, but any help would be appreciated! This is for serious, I swear!

      • The homeless guy said the perp was 5’4” and either Asian or South American with black hair. Any male who is only 5’4”, has wide cheekbones and black hair is going to be some variant of Asian extraction. That could be someone of Mongolian blood (American Indian or Hispanic) or someone of Asian or mixed Asian ancestry. This guy has some Caucasian blood, as evidenced by his coloring, but his body type is Asian and that is what the homeless guy recognized. Anyone who has been to Vietnam would recognize this guy as an Anglo/Asian mutt, a byproduct of the war.
