Hi there, please explain to me what does "get a visual ID" mean in this case:

“That’s when I looked back, and everything came together really fast. There was the flash of a gun, and him lunging for me. Like I told the cops, my brain wasn’t exactly transmitting, ‘Get a visual ID.’ It was more like, ‘Holy freak show, I’m about to go splat!’ He growled, whacked me three or four times with the gun, grabbed my handbag, and ran.”

Thanks

    Hi Minhduc. It means Look at him and memorize his face for when the police are asking you questions later.
