Alert Winnipeg Police cadets are being credited with helping snag a man accused of breaking into a car.

Cadets and officers responded to a call about a man being spotted smashing the window of a car parked downtown and grabbing an electronic device and other items before running, police said Saturday.

Police said the suspect was found with break-in tools.

While being arrested, the suspect allegedly threatened two police officers.
