Police are seeking the public's help to locate a man who punched another man on a Muni bus last week and stole the victim's backpack, which contained his pit bull puppy, Chester, said a statement from police Wednesday.

The incident occurred about 2:38 a.m. Jan. 22 on a Muni coach near Sixth and Mission streets.

The 18-year-old victim was sitting on the bus near the door with his backpack next to him when another man, who is believed to be in his 20s and about 5-foot-9, snatched the backpack and fled, Officer Grace Gatpandan said in the statement. The suspect was wearing a black vest shirt with a gray sweatshirt.

Police released surveillance images from the camera on the bus.

In the images, the suspect can be seen entering, sitting and possibly exiting the bus.

Police also released pictures of Chester.
