Woman Receives Threats in Flower Delivery at Workplace

A woman found a threatening note in a bouquet of flowers delivered to her at her Center City Philadelphia workplace, and police on Monday asked for the public's help to figure out who sent it.

Police released surveillance video dated shortly before 2 p.m. Aug. 24 that they believe shows the suspect in a flower shop ordering the flower delivery for the victim. The suspect is seen talking with a worker and walking around the shop in the video. He's described by police as a black man in his mid-20s about 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 8. He wore a green and white hat, a dark T-shirt with a Puma logo on the left chest, dark pants and dark sneakers when he was in the flower shop.

Police said the woman was at work on 23rd Street near Chestnut the afternoon of Aug. 25, the next day, when she received the unexpected -- and unwelcome -- flower delivery. They said the note on the flowers threatened her specifically, but did not provide details on exactly what the note said.

Police said the woman did not recognize the name of the person who sent the flowers and doesn't know who the man in the surveillance video is.

They asked that anyone who recognizes the man or has information on the threats contact Central Detectives at 215-686-3093 or 3094.
