    "Someone out there knows something, and we want that person to come forward," police Chief James Keegan said during a late morning press conference.

    The surveillance video shows the attacker dressed all in black aside from one white sneaker with his face covered by a black mask. Authorities are hoping someone will be able to identify the attacker despite the obscurity.

    "This video depicts the gait, mannerisms, and movements of the killer. Please pay attention to the killer's walk, build and body language. As seen in the video, this killer went to great lengths to avoid detection and conceal his appearance," said Keegan.
