Police are on the hunt for two Calgarians in connection to the September 2 robbery of a man inside a northeast home during which the victim was allegedly duct taped and tortured with a pair of pliers.

Arrest warrants have been issued for 20-year-old Colton Eli King and 33-year-old Michael Warren Stoffels. Two suspects, 19-year-old Samuel Chase and an unidentified teenage girl, were charged following the robbery.

King and Stoffels face charges of:

  • Extortion
  • Robbery
  • Assault
  • Threats to cause bodily harm or death
  • Unlawful confinement

On the afternoon of September 2, 2015, emergency crews responded to a home in the 100 block of Coventry Road Northeast after neighbours heard the cries of an injured man, shrouded in duct tape, on the lawn of a home.

According to neighbours, the man said he had been robbed inside the residence and had been tortured, including the removal of one of his toes.

Police say the robbery victim had previously met a teenager girl on a bus and the two exchanged contact information. The victim was lured to the Coventry Hills home.

Anyone with information about the current locations of either King or Stoffels is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service, 403-266-1234, or Crime Stoppers.
