Police are asking for the public’s help to find a Red Deer man after he allegedly robbed a woman at gunpoint in West Park on Remembrance Day.
Michael Wayne Lamontagne, 47, is wanted on Alberta-wide warrants.
Police say Lamontagne approached a woman around 11 a.m. on Nov. 11 as she exited her car demanding money and displaying a handgun.
The woman got back into her car and locked the door, but the suspect smashed the car window and took her backpack before fleeing on foot.
The woman was not injured.
RCMP identified the suspect within an hour of the robbery when he and a woman were caught on video using the victim’s credit card at a convenience store. Police say the female suspect was driving a truck that had been stolen out of Red Deer on Nov. 1.
The truck was abandoned in Gasoline Alley on Nov. 12 and she was arrested on Nov. 17.
Diane Fiddler, 44, is facing charges of possession of stolen property over $5,000, possession of stolen property under $5,000 and fraud under $5,000. Fiddler will appear in Red Deer court on Nov. 30.
Police continue to search for Lamontagne.
Lamontagne is facing charges of armed robbery with a firearm, possession of a weapon contrary to a court order, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose and fraud under $5,000.
He is also wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for violating his parole.
Police ask residents not to approach Lamontagne because he may have a weapon.
