A warrant has been issued for a man considered armed and dangerous after he allegedly pointed a rifle at another man's head.

RCMP are asking for the public's help to locate Thomas Turner, 25, but are urging people not to approach him.

Turner has been charged for assault, breach of probation and numerous firearms-related offences in connection with the incident, which happened July 16 near Reynolds Ponds in the Rural Municipality of Reynolds.

Turner allegedly pointed the gun then punched the man in the face. The victim fled the scene with minor injuries.

The police investigation led officers to a home in the RM of La Broquerie, where they found several firearms that police believe were stolen by Turner.

Police have been searching for him since. Turner is known to drive a 1993 Blue Chevrolet 3500 truck.

If anyone sees him, they are asked to immediately call the Steinbach RCMP at 204-326-4452, or report it anonymously through Manitoba Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Information can also be submitted online at manitobacrimestoppers.com, or through text message by texting "TIPMAN" plus the information to CRIMES (274637).
