  • Print

Winnipeg police are asking for the public’s help in locating a sixth suspect in the strong-arm robbery near the Polo Park Shopping Centre earlier this month.

The incident occurred on July 12 at approximately 4 p.m., when three people (two females and a male, all 18-years-old) were walking to Omand’s Creek area under the railway bridge east of Empress Street.

The group was confronted by several suspects and held at knifepoint for over an hour and a half. The victims were threatened and assaulted, and eventually robbed of their cell phones, identification, cash and bank cards.

Earlier this month, four males - between the ages of 16 and 19 - were arrested for their involvement in the incident. A fifth person, a 21-year-old man, turned himself in to police Monday.

Winnipeg police have an arrest warrant for a sixth man, 18-year-old Joseph Jordan Henderson, for his alleged involvement in the robbery. He is facing numerous robbery and confinement charges.

Anyone with any information regarding Henderson’s whereabouts is asked to contact investigators at (204) 986-2877 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
