MESA, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

The Mesa Police Department is asking the public's help in identifying a suspect who fatally stabbed a woman at a nail salon in early February.

According to Mesa police, the stabbing occurred on Feb. 2 at about 7 p.m. Police say a male suspect entered the nail salon and fatally stabbed Lindsey Eastridge before fleeing the area.

Police released short surveillance video of the suspect on Wednesday.

"He's got kind of a specific gait or walk to him, the way that he walks, the way that he moves... and we'd like people to look at that closely and see if that's someone that they recognize, if they've seen that walk," said Det. Steve Berry with the Mesa Police Department.

No vehicle was seen. Police say they have not been able to locate or identify the suspect.

"Based on the crime itself, and some of the details I'm not able to explain, we still believe that it is not a random event. We believe that we will ultimately find some sort of connectivity but with that said - there's always the chance that there's not," said Berry.

The suspect is described as an adult male wearing a dark hoodie, eyeglasses, U.S. Polo Assn. blue jeans and gray shoes with white soles.

"Anytime you have someone willing to go in and perpetrate this type of violent crime against an innocent person, they're a dangerous person. We need to find them, we need to get them off the streets so they don't have the opportunity to hurt someone else," said Berry.
