Detectives said that they were able to identify the suspect as Gary K. Gangloff during their investigation with the help of the surveillance video.

While in custody, Gangloff told investigators that a fight ensued because he thought the victim stole his cologne and that “he also warned the victim this would happen if it was not returned,” according to police.

According to OPD, Gangoff spent a combined 30 years in prison and was recently released in May.
