The Calgary Police on Monday released the CCTV photos of a man suspected in stabbing another man to death.
The Calgary Police described the suspect as Indigenous, between 20 and 25 years old, 5’10” to 6’ tall, with a slim to medium build, with long, dark hair in braids.
According to a statement released by Calgary Police, the suspect was wearing a grey t-shirt, red shorts, a baseball hat and tall dark socks with black and white Nike running shoes. He carried two dark-coloured bags, criss-crossed over his shoulders.
The statement further added, in addition to the suspect, police are also searching for the driver of a vehicle, believed to be a potential witness to the altercation between the victim and the assailant. A red or burgundy SUV was stopped in the eastbound curb lane of Fifth Avenue at the intersection with Centre Street S.W., at 7:14 p.m., on Wednesday, June 30, 2021.
“We have information that the victim tripped and fell onto the back end of the SUV during the altercation with the suspect and we need to speak with the driver,” the Calgary Police said, adding that investigators are also working to corroborate the victim’s account of a fight between a man and a woman in James Short Park shortly prior to the stabbing.
“This is one of those cases in which information from the public will be crucial to helping us find answers to what occurred last Wednesday. Our team is working hard to get to the bottom of what happened, and to find the person responsible for this attack,” says Homicide Unit Staff Sgt. Martin Schiavetta.
