Nelson RCMP now looking for wanted Fort St. John man

Nelson RCMP are now looking for a wanted man from Fort St. John.

21 year old Ishmani Baker is wanted on several BC wide arrest warrants...it was thought he was in the Trail area last week, but police now believe he's in the Nelson area.

RCMP say Baker has managed to avoid police on several occasions, most recently when police converged in the Beasley area Sunday night when they tried to arrest the man.

Warrants for the man include assault with a weapon, uttering threats and mischief under 5-thousand...he's described as 5 foot 7, 181 pounds, with blond hair and blue eyes.

Residents are asked not to approach Baker if you see him, but to call 911 immediately.

Anyone with information is asked to call RCMP or CrimeStoppers
