They ran away, but two suspects were quickly apprehended.

Unfortunately, the third suspect was not apprehended. He is described as a 14 to 17-year-old White male wearing a white or light gray hooded sweatshirt and black pants. A large upside-down smiley face with the text “Always Smiling” is on the back of the sweatshirt.
