  • Print

Police are seeking help to locate a Winnipeg gang associate accused in a violent robbery attempt where a gun was shot off during a house party.

Michael Tylor Fless, 28, is wanted for gun-related charges, robbery and failing to comply with his probation order.

Fless is a suspect in a March 1 incident in the 1500 Block of Alexander Avenue where one partygoer is suspected of pulling a gun and trying to rob another.

Police said the gun was fired, but there were no injuries.

Efforts by detectives to find Fless have so far failed. He's described as five-foot-four, 150 pounds with a medium build, a fair complexion. He has short brown hair and blue eyes.

Police say he's not to be approached and is considered armed and dangerous.

Fless has a history of involvement in different city street gangs, according to police gang expert reports. His street nickname is "Smallz," which is tattooed on his neck.

Anyone with information regarding his whereabouts is asked to call 204-986-6668 or CrimeStoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
