Police would like to identify this suspect they believe is responsible for a bomb scare that shut down Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface in late March.

Police continue to search for a man they believe is responsible for causing a bomb scare that shut down Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface in late March.

A suspicious package was left unattended in the stairwell of the school about 11:20 a.m. on March 26, forcing the evacuation of students and staff. The Winnipeg Police Service bomb unit was called in to investigate, finally concluding the contents of a backpack contained a Hilti hammer drill that was later confirmed to be stolen.

Police say an unknown man arrived on campus with the backpack but left it behind.

The suspect was caught on surveillance camera, and is described as Caucasian, about six-foot-two with a slim build, wearing a dark navy blue, three-quarter-length jacket with a hood, dark pants and boots, a black tuque with red and white stripes, eyeglasses and black mechanical gloves with tan or white patches

He left the area riding a red mountain bike. When leaving, he was seen wearing a black tuque and baseball cap (khaki brown/green brim) underneath.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspect is asked to contact 204-986-2857 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
