COLUMBUS, Ohio –

The FBI has issued a more detailed description of a man who apparently sprayed a Muslim woman with a pepper spray and the public is being asked to help find him.

NBC4 first told you about this story Tuesday, after a veiled woman told police she had been sprayed with some kind of chemical by a man who came up to the driver’s side window in the parking lot of a mosque.  He yelled threatening remarks and drove off.

The FBI is asking the public if they know a white male, in his 40’s or 50’s, 5 feet 9 inches tall with a medium build.  His light colored, closed-cropped beard is coupled with a long mustache.

Authorities say his teeth are in poor condition, yellowish with several missing.  He has light-colored eyes.

The image of the vehicle he was driving was captured on surveillance video. It’s a white Jeep Cherokee from the late 80’s or early 90’s and has a roof rack and black wheels.

Anyone with information on the man or vehicle is asked to contact the FBI at 614-744-2144 or Crime Stoppers at 614-461-8477.

The woman did not suffer serious injury in the incident.
