GLOUCESTER TOWNSHIP — Investigators are trying to find a man accused of attacking a cop during a flash mob fight at a family-friendly event in South Jersey this past weekend.

Gloucester Township police said as many as 500 youths got together Saturday night at Gloucester Township Day and many began fighting without warning. The violence then overwhelmed the rest of the event and police officers from other towns had to come in to help.

One man is accused of trying to punch a police officer amid the havoc. According to police, officers were trying to get an "unruly" crowd across the street at the Urge Fitness to leave when the man swung at a cop several times.

He was pepper-sprayed but got away by running into the large crowd.

Police released images of the suspect on Wednesday morning. He's been dubbed "Suspect 001."
