Roseville Crime Stoppers is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of a man wanted in connection with a home-invasion robbery and assault with a knife.

Roseville police are asking for the public’s help in finding 20-year-old Alex Dorian Conwell, who is sought in connection with the two crimes committed in early January.

The robbery occurred the morning of Jan. 8 in a Roseville home in which robbers entered through a window and held a resident at gunpoint before fleeing with firearms and other property. Police said the house was targeted for the firearms.

While investigating the home invasion, detectives found evidence connecting the robbers to a violent crime the next day near Galleria Boulevard. In the evening of Jan. 9, a man got into a car in a parking lot on Roseville Parkway to sell marijuana. The drug buyers pointed a shotgun at him, and the drug seller was stabbed several times in a struggle.

Detectives since have arrested three people in connection with the home-invasion robbery and two others in connection with the stabbing. Police said Conwell is suspected of participating in both crimes.

Conwell is described as 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighing about 155 pounds. Police said his hair may be shorter now than it was in a 2014 booking photo.

Police said Conwell has no known local address. He has lived in Indiana and in Pittsburg in Contra Costa County, but has recently been in the Roseville/Rocklin area. Police said he is likely to be armed.

Anyone with information on Conwell can call Roseville Crime Stoppers, at 916-783-7867. Callers can remain anonymous and could qualify for a $500 cash reward if the information they provide leads to Conwell’s arrest.
