Winnipeg police have made an arrest following the stabbing of a security guard in June.

The incident occurred on June 14 shortly before 10:30 p.m. A female was in a grocery store on the 500 block of Mountain Avenue, gathered an assortment of food valued at $200 and left the store without paying for the goods.

The security guard witnessed the woman leaving the store with the items and attempted to take her into custody.

The woman produced a knife and stabbed the guard in the upper body, causing significant injury.

Police made an arrest in this case Monday morning, taking Melanie Faith Johnston, 31, into custody for her alleged involvement in the incident.

Johnston is facing a number of charges and remains in custody.
