Chicago Police released a photo Friday of a man suspected of slashing the tires of a police van during anti-NATO demonstrations on May 19.

Police said the man slashed the rear tires of the police van about 9:30 p.m. in the 300 block of West Jackson, according to a community alert from Area Central detectives.

Protesters charged that the van drove through a crowd of marchers, and some said they had to jump to get out of the way. At least one person was injured by the van, who his friends identified as Jack Amico, 25, of Staten Island, N.Y.

The man suspected of slashing the tires of the van was described as white, in his 20s or 30s with brown hair and a slim build, police said. He was last seen wearing dark clothing.

Anyone with information about the suspect should call Area Central detectives at (312) 747-8382.
