Calgary police still on the trail of Jimmy Minh Nguyen

The Calgary Police Service continues to seek public assistance in locating a man wanted in connection with a 2009 jailhouse assault.

On Wednesday, Dec. 2, 2009, at 4:30 p.m., a man was waiting in a dinner line at the Calgary Remand Centre, when he was assaulted by two other men.

The attackers punched and kicked the victim. There were no weapons used in the assault.

Correctional Peace Officers were able to stop the assault, but the victim suffered serious injuries.

An investigation was conducted by the CPS Serious Habitual Offender Program (SHOP), with the assistance of the CPS Homicide Unit and the Calgary Remand Centre.

In February 2010, police charged a 21-year-old man with aggravated assault. At the time, an arrest warrant was also issued for Jimmy Minh NGUYEN, 19, of Calgary, for aggravated assault.

Investigators have been looking for NGUYEN since, but he has evaded capture.

NGUYEN is described as an Asian male, approximately 5’8” tall, 160 lbs., with a medium build, brown eyes and black hair.

A photo of NGUYEN is available on the City of Calgary Newsroom.

NGUYEN resides in Calgary, but has ties to Vancouver, B.C. Investigators believe he may have been out of Calgary for several months, but has recently returned.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of NGUYEN is asked to call police
