RCMP are hoping someone can help them identify a man who pulled out a handgun and pointed it another person at a Vernon business over a month ago.

Officers were called to a firearms complaint at a business in the 4300 block of 27 Street at around 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 14, according to an RCMP media release issued today, Nov. 21.

RCMP do not identify the business.

Police said a customer was yelling at staff when a fellow customer intervened.

The suspect followed the person into the parking lot and started a fight. He then pulled a handgun and pointed it at the other customer. The suspect got away on foot.

The fight was recorded on video surveillance and police have released an image from the video hoping someone recognizes the suspect.

RCMP describe the suspect as a Caucasian male in his 20s, tall with a slim build, a brown moustache and a bowl-style hair cut. He was wearing light coloured shorts and a blue sweatshirt with white and red lettering on the back.

If you can identify the suspect, or have information that may assist police in identifying him, you are asked to contact Vernon RCMP Const. Boudreau at 250-545-7171 and quote file #2023-18299. Or remain anonymous by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or by leaving a tip online at www.nokscrimestoppers.com.
