Officer Ramon Denby says police want Smith to surrender himself.

Smith’s publicist in New York didn’t immediately respond to messages seeking comment.

Sixty-year-old photographer Volker Correl was taking photos at the Men’s Apparel and Garment Industry Convention when he says Smith ripped the camera from around his neck.

Correl says photos clearly show Smith reaching toward him before his camera was broken.
