Police searching for "a dangerous pimp with ties to street gangs"

Montreal police are looking for a man they call a dangerous pimp with ties to street gangs.

Muhidiin Ahmed Farah is being sought on a Canada-wide arrest warrant for breaching his parole conditions; police say he was behind a violent beating at a motel in Cote-des-Neiges-NDG about a month ago.

Police warn to consider him armed and dangerous. He may be in Montréal this weekend for Grand Prix festivities, according to the SPVM, and travels frequently between Montreal and Saskatchewan.

According to officers, Farah has ties to street gangs and to several activities as a pimp. 

He is dark skinned, with brown eyes and black hair. Police say he is six-feet tall and weighs 187 pounds.
