UPDATE: Police said on Jan. 31, 2020 that a suspect was identified and wanted on warrants. 

Warrants have been issued for a young Calgary man’s arrest in relation to a July incident where a man was reportedly robbed at gunpoint.

Calgary police asked the public for help in November finding a man they say pointed a gun at a person and demanded bank cards and PINs.

Three suspects were chatting with a Cowboys Casino customer around 1:15 a.m. on July 14, before convincing them to come to one of their vehicles.

When the person got in the vehicle, one of the suspects threatened them with a gun.
