Knife-wielding man sought

Kamloops RCMP need the public's help to apprehend a man wanted for a series of robberies while brandishing a large kitchen knife.

The male suspect has committed a string of thefts at three separate Kamloops businesses including one in the past 24 hours. In each instance, he has brandished a large knife as a weapon.

The man is described as  45-55 years old, Caucasian, with a large build and a grey goatee. In a photo provided by RCMP from surveillance camera footage, the man is wearing a  blue and grey Vancouver Canucks hooded sweatshirt during each of the three hold-ups.

“The Kamloops RCMP are actively seeking out this suspect with all available resources. Should you encounter him in your business, do not attempt to apprehend him, but rather dial 911 as quickly as possible to aid in the expedited response of police resources. The suspect is to be considered armed and dangerous to the public," said Sgt. Brandon Buliziuk.

If you recognize this man or have any information that may help authorities, you are advised to contact Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
