Police release photo of man wanted in bank robbery
Winnipeg police want public’s help finding Roy Samuel Williams
The Winnipeg police are asking the public to help them find a man wanted in connection with a bank robbery.
Police said a bank in the 1500 block of Kenaston Boulevard was robbed on Dec. 20, 2012.
It happened just before 7 p.m., when three men went into the bank and confronted several employees, according to information released by police in December.
Police said the group demanded money and fled with the cash in a stolen pick-up truck.
One of the men was armed, but no one was injured in the robbery.
Officers later found the truck abandoned and discovered it was stolen. The men then fled to another stolen vehicle, police said.
The vehicle was stopped by police in the 900 block of Markham Road, and a woman got out of the car before the remaining occupants fled outside of city limits.
The woman was arrested at the time, but police have not said if any charges were laid against her.
The vehicle was later found abandoned in Morris, Man.
After a lengthy investigation by the major crimes unit, a warrant was issued for the arrest of 33-year-old Roy Samuel Williams.
Williams is about six feet tall and 195 pounds.
Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators at 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477.
