KELOWNA - After nearly four months, a number of tips from the public have help the Kelowna RCMP identify a robbery suspect.

Kelowna RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Jesse O'Donaghey says in a news release Cameron James Fitzpatrick allegedly robbed a Subway restaurant in the 1700 block of Springfield Road on April 30. The suspect allegedly stole an undisclosed amount of cash from an open register and fled on foot.

The only employee working at the store followed the suspect and physically confronted him outside the restaurant. The suspect allegedly pulled out a knife and the employee went back into the store. The employee didn't suffer any injuries.

Police searched the area immediately after the incident but weren't able to find the suspect, O'Donaghey says.

“Tips came in after RCMP publicly released images of the robbery suspect, obtained from the restaurant’s video surveillance system,” O’Donaghey says in the release. “The suspect has since been identified as Cameron James Fitzpatrick. A warrant has been issued by the Courts for Cameron’s arrest and police continue to search for him on that outstanding warrant.”

If you know where Fitzpatrick might be, you're asked to call your local police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
