One man has been charged in connection with a homicide in downtown Calgary last weekend, and now police are asking for the public’s help in find him.

Just after 2 am on Sunday, May 27, a man in his 20s was found in medical distress in the 200 block of 15 Avenue SE.

Although police initially believed the man’s injuries may have been connected to an earlier nearby altercation involving approximately 10 people, they now say further investigation has led them to believe that is no longer the case.

Instead, investigators now believe that an unrelated altercation occurred between two individuals in the same area, during which the man was stabbed.

The victim was transported to hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. He was later identified as 24-year-old Craig Cutter.

Police have now charged a man in connection with this incident. Kyle Stanley James Bearhat, 26, of Calgary, is wanted on warrants for one count of manslaughter.

Bearhat is described as Indigenous, 5’7” tall, with an average build, brown eyes, and black hair. He also has a distinctive scar on his left cheek.

Anyone with information on Bearhat’s whereabouts or the incident is being asked to call the Calgary Police Service non-emergency number at 403-266-1234, or to leave an anonymous tip, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 1-800-222-8477 or leave a tip online.
