Two city men are charged following the robberies of food delivery persons.

During the evening hours of Wednesday, a male suspect in the company of two others contacted a local pizza restaurant and placed an order for delivery in the area of the 200 block of Burrows Avenue.

It’s alleged that the suspects had intentions of robbing the delivery person upon arrival.

At approximately 10:30 p.m., the delivery arrived and the victim was confronted. The suspects were armed with a knife and robbed the delivery person of food and cash. Nobody was hurt.

On Thursday at approximately 7:40 p.m., a similar circumstance occurred. However, a different business and delivery person was victimized.

Both incidents were reported and investigations commenced.

On Friday, patrol members and District 3 detectives went to the 200 block of Burrows Avenue and arrested two men.

Parmjit Singh, 25, and Anthony Barkman, 19, have been charged with numerous offences including robbery with a weapon and possession of weapon.

They were detained at the Winnipeg Remand Centre. The investigation continues.
