Calgary Police seek public assistance in identifying robbery suspect

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance in identifying a suspect in connection with a robbery and a break-and-enter, both which occurred earlier this year.

On Sunday, July 14, 2019, at approximately 1:15 a.m., a patron of Cowboys Casino was engaged in conversation with three suspects who convinced the patron to come to one of their vehicles to continue the conversation.

Upon entering the vehicle, one of the suspects allegedly pointed a firearm at the victim and demanded banks cards and PIN numbers.

The victim was able to escape the car and seek help from police, at which point the male suspect fled on foot. A loaded 12-guage shotgun, a large hunting knife and bear spray were located in the vehicle. Two suspects were arrested, but one suspect remains outstanding.

Investigators believe the outstanding male suspect is also involved in a break-and-enter that occurred between 10:00 p.m., on Saturday, Aug. 31, 2019, and 7:30 a.m., on Sunday, Sept. 1, 2019. The incident occurred in the 0-100 block of Pantego Avenue N.W.

It is believed the male suspect gained entry to the residence through the attached garage. Once inside the home, the suspect stole a wallet and keys to two vehicles which were also stolen.

A photo of the suspect is available on the City of Calgary Newsroom.

As this is an active investigation, no additional information will be released at this time. 

Police are looking to speak to anyone who may have information about the suspect or the events of either of these incidents. Citizens can contact police through the non-emergency phone number at 403-266-1234 or anonymously through Crime Stoppers using any of the following methods:
