Calgary police say a man was arrested outside city limits Wednesday in connection with an armed robbery. 

Tuesday evening, police had asked the public to help locate Calvin O’Brien, 28.

O’Brien was wanted on warrants for allegedly pointing a gun at a restaurant worker in the  400 block of Erin Woods Dr. S.E. Tuesday morning and demanding money. 

Investigators believe the suspect was also involved in a similar robbery earlier on Tuesday at a gas station in the 300 block of Cranston Road S.E. 

Police said O’Brien was wanted on warrants for robbery with a restricted or prohibited firearm, possession of an imitation weapon for dangerous purposes, carrying a concealed weapon and pointing a firearm. He also faces three counts of failing to comply with conditions of a recognizance.
