Suspect wanted for assault taunts Tsuut'ina police on social media

Anyone who encounters him, or has information regarding his whereabouts, is asked to contact Tsuut'ina police at 403-271-3777

The Tosguna Tsuut'ina Nation Police Service is seeking tips from the public as they search for a wanted man, but the assault suspect himself appears to believe police should be using a more flattering photo.

Police released details on Aug. 22 regarding wanted man Traven Ellis Swampy and recirculated the plea for tips on Friday.

Swampy is wanted for 3 charges:

- Assault 

- Uttering threats

- Assault with a weapon causing bodily harm

After crews went to social media, the owner of a Facebook account with a Traven Swampy url that now bears a profile name consisting of his middle name and a different surname, replied to the police service's Facebook post and recommended a different photo.

Service officials say Swampy should not be approached
