A California man with an “Air Jordan” face tattoo is being sought in connection with an armed robbery and assault, authorities with the Bakersfield Police Department said.

Police are looking for Carlos Gazca, 24, and three other, unidentified suspects. 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.

The authorities told KGET Gazca is wanted for robbery, conspiracy and car theft.

In an interview with 23ABC, however, Gazca claims that he is “being framed.”

“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.

A spokesman for the Bakersfield Police Department will not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on Friday afternoon.
