The Nanaimo RCMP is profiling those with outstanding warrants over the next several months.
RCMP is looking for 62-year-old Percy Khambata, who is wanted for Assault with a Weapon and Possession of a Dangerous Weapon to the Public Peace.
Khambata is described as standing 5’4, two hundred pounds, with grey hair and a beard.
On June 27 of last year, he allegedly yelled and screamed at some of the vendors at the downtown Commercial Street Market, leading to a physical confrontation with a man who held Khambata down until police arrived.
He was seen with a six-inch serrated knife, which was seized by police.
The man didn’t show up for his court hearing on February 3 of this year and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Investigators are still looking for Khambata, but believe he may have moved out of province.
