Police are trying to track down a man who they believe to have been present at a robbery this past summer.

According to a release from the Calgary Police Service, a woman had been held up at gunpoint in the early hours of July 14.

The release states that the woman had “engaged in conversation with three suspects” at around 1:15 am at Cowboys Casino that morning, and the suspects convinced the woman to come to one of their vehicles.

Once inside the vehicle, the suspects allegedly pointed a firearm at the woman and demanded that she give them her bank cards and PIN numbers.

The woman fled the car and contacted the police, resulting in the arrest of two suspects.

In the car, police allegedly found a loaded 12-gauge shotgun, a large hunting knife, and bear spray. The third suspect successfully fled the area on foot.

Police now believe that this third suspect had been involved in a break-and-enter that took place on Saturday, August 31 at the 100 block of Pantego Avenue NW.

The suspect allegedly gained access through the house’s garage and stole a wallet and keys to two vehicles, which were also stolen.
