TWO men were mugged for their smartphones on a St. Boniface street.

The two men were confronted by a group of four other men who were armed.

Police did not say what weapons the suspects carried. They took the pair's cellular phones but no injuries were reported.

Police called out the canine unit and the helicopter along with foot-patrol officers to track the suspects, but no arrests were reported Saturday.

 

Critical after core stabbing

WINNIPEG police reported they were investigating a stabbing Saturday in the inner city that left one man in critical condition.

Police were on the scene of the crime since just before midnight Friday after they were called to the 500 block of Home Street about 11:40 p.m.

By Saturday morning, investigators were satisfied the stabbing was the result of a fight that took place at the address among people who all knew each other. Major crimes investigators were still conducting interviews Saturday, police said in a statement.
