WINNIPEG -- Winnipeg police are searching for a 20-year-old man considered armed and dangerous after a group of teens were robbed at the Tuxedo Community Centre in early May.
On Thursday, Winnipeg police said Gordan Eaglebear Lucas is wanted in connection to the robbery involving a firearm.
A group of teens had been making videos on their phones at the Tuxedo Community Centre on May 1, 2021, when five people confronted them. Police said one of the people lifted his shirt to reveal a gun tucked in his waistband, and another person had a can of what was described as pepper spray.
Police allege the five people took the teens' belongings and ran off.
Nearly two weeks later, police have issued a warrant for Lucas' arrest. He is facing weapon charges and two counts of robbery. The charges have not been proven in court.
Police describe Lucas as six-foot-three, with a heavy build and a bowl cut/undercut hairstyle.
"Lucas is considered to be armed and dangerous. The public is cautioned not to approach him," Police said in a news release. "Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to call 911."
Police said anyone with information that may help investigations is asked to call the Major Crimes Unit at 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477.
