Bridgeport Police are hoping the public can help them identify a man who delivered a grenade to the Bridgeport Police Internal Affairs Office last month.

Police say the suspect put a grenade in a coffee cup and gave it to an unsuspecting person to deliver.  They say the grenade,   which probably was purchased as a souvenir,  was filled with a low-grade explosive powder and could not have detonated, though that was apparently the supect’s intent.

Police released camera images of the man’s vehicle,   a black Toyota 4-Runner with tinted windows,  5-point rims, a roof rack, chrome door handles and rain guards over the driver and passenger windows.  They describe him as a black man of medium build with scruffy hair,   about  35 years old and six feet tall.  He was wearing a waist-length coat with a belt and a light colored hat on Feb. 27,  the day the grenade was delivered.

Police ask anyone who may know anything about the suspect to call Detective Todd Hoben at 203-581-5247.
