Vancouver – Vancouver Police have released security footage of a man who may have information about an armed robbery and forcible confinement at a Yaletown nightclub in April, and are asking the man, or anyone who knows him, to call police.

VPD began an investigation on April 9, after two suspects entered the club after hours, threatened staff with a gun and knife, and stole $25,000 in cash. During the takeover-style robbery, six victims had their hands zap-strapped and were forcibly confined. One victim was seriously assaulted and suffered a life-altering injury.

Investigators have identified a number of suspects but are seeking additional evidence before charges can be recommended to Crown counsel.

“We believe this man was present at the nightclub at the time of the offence and could have important information that could assist us in completing the investigation,” says Constable Tania Visintin. “We want to speak with this man to find out what he knows.”

Investigators from VPD’s Major Crime Section can be reached at 604-717-2541.
