“Members of the public, in both Red Deer and Edmonton, may have information related to the whereabouts of Hagos, and we want to work with them to locate him,” CPS said. “However, if anyone is attempting to assist Hagos in evading police, we are equally committed to holding them responsible.”

Police advise anyone who comes across Hagos to exercise caution, as he is considered armed and dangerous, and should not be approached. Instead, people are asked to report any sightings to 911.

Anyone with information about Hagos’ whereabouts is asked to call the CPS non-emergency line at 403-266-1234. Anonymous tips can also be provided to Crime Stoppers.
