Police say Sasenarine Etwaroo, 51, has "a lengthy criminal history" in Canada and south of the border, and has most recently been living in Brampton, Ont.
Etwaroo is described as a six-foot male with a tan complexion, weighing 180 pounds. He has a medium build and short, dark hair that is balding on top.
In the past, he has worn dark-rimmed prescription glasses but police say he may alter his appearance in a bid to evade the authorities.
Etwaroo is considered dangerous and police say he should not be approached.
Anyone with knowledge of his whereabouts should contact police.
