Police are asking for help in identifying the suspect.

The Winnipeg police are asking the public to help identify a male suspect in a pair of commercial robberies.

The first robbery occurred on Jan. 10 shortly after 4 a.m. at a convenience store in the 1300 block of Main Street. A lone male armed with a weapon entered the store and began demanding money. The suspect proceeded to go behind the counter and take an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes. The suspect then fled the store, followed by the clerk and customer, but escaped.

The second robbery occurred on Jan. 10 at approximately 8:30 p.m., at a convenience store in the 300 block of Manitoba Avenue. During this incident two armed male suspects entered the store and confronted a female employee. Shortly after, a male employee was alerted and came to help the female. A brief struggle ensued and both suspects fled the store with an undisclosed amount of money.

No one was injured in either of the incidents. Investigators are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the following male suspect.

Anyone with any information regarding the identity of the suspect is asked to contact investigators from the Major Crimes Unit at 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
