Suspected serial robber nabbed

  • Print

Police have charged a man in connection with a string of commercial robberies in April. Police said the robberies began April 2 and were carried out at businesses on Ness, Portage and River avenues, as well as Pembina Highway throughout the month.

In each of the incidents, the bandit either produced a weapon or implied that he had one. In all but one case, the suspect obtained an undisclosed amount of money.

No one was injured during any of the incidents.

On Friday night, police arrested a man in connection with the eight robberies following a holdup at a business in the 700 block of Portage Avenue. Police said a man demanded money from the clerk who refused. The attempted robber fled and police were called. Police said they arrested a suspect in the immediate vicinity without incident.

John Victor Andrew Munroe, 30, has been charged with several robbery-related offences.

He was detained at the Remand Centre.
