A California man with an “Air Jordan” face tattoo is no longer wanted in connection with an armed robbery and assault, authorities with the Bakersfield Police department told Fox News.

On Thursday, the police said that they were looking for Carlos Gazca, 24, and three other, unidentified suspects. At the time, authorities said Gazca and the three others, all of whom are believed to be Hispanic men in their early 20s, allegedly attacked a victim on June 23 for stealing the victim’s car, KGET reported.

The vehicle, which is not located, is a black 2013 Chevrolet Impala with a California license plate 6YNB696, according to the news station.

At the time that the authorities told KGET Gazca was wanted for robbery, conspiracy and car theft.

Late Friday night, however, Fox News received an updated overview of the Bakersfield Police Department said that investigators approached Gazca and “eliminated him as a suspect in this robbery.” However, the 24-year-old is still wanted on an unrelated felony parole violation warrant, according to the police.

The news comes after Gazca gave an interview to 23ABC, who claims that he was “accused.”

“I’m being framed, unjustly accused of a crime I didn’t commit in the city of Bakersfield,” he said, adding that he moved to Arkansas after he was released from prison in January.

In the past, Gazca has been charged with robbery, battery, burglary and grand theft, according to 23ABC.
