Cops are looking for a shirtless man who swiped a speaker from a Manhattan cellphone shop last week.

According to police, at 11:20 a.m. on Aug. 1, an unknown man entered an AT&T Store, located at 225 West 23rd Street, and approached a 24-year-old male employee. The suspect threatened the employee, saying that he would beat him up if he stopped him from taking a Brazen speaker.

The employee complied and the suspect took the speaker, valued at $34, off of the wall. The suspect then fled the store in an unknown direction.

On Aug. 9, the NYPD released photos and video of the shirtless man taken from the crime scene:
