Portage la Prairie RCMP are looking for a teen suspected in multiple assaults.
Wyatt Martin-French, 17, is wanted in two separate incidents on Sept. 1, involving attacks with bear mace on Spruce Bay and 6th Street NE in Portage.
RCMP made a special application to a youth justice judge to identify the suspect, as they have reason to believe he may be a danger to others. An underage offender typically wouldn’t be identified by police under the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
Police said Martin-French is considered dangerous and shouldn’t be approached by the public.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Portage la Prairie RCMP at 204-857-4445 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS). You can also submit a secure tip online at manitobacrimestoppers.com.
