  • Print

Two 19-year-old men face a number of charges after using a crowbar to smash a restaurant and car window on Leila Avenue.

Winnipeg police responded to a fight involving several men at the eatery in the 800 block of Leila about 12:40 a.m. today, a news release said.

An 18-year-old man there told police he had been confronted by two men, one armed with a crowbar, who tried to assault him with the crowbar and a chair from the restaurant.

The attackers initially fled then returned and smashed the window of the business and the victim’s car window. They took off again and raced away in a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed, the police press release said.

The police canine unit spotted a suspect vehicle driving in an unsafe manner in the 700 block of Kingsbury Avenue. The vehicle stopped and two suspects fled. They were taken into custody a short distance away.

They face charges of assault with a weapon, mischief under $5,000 and possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose.
