A Winnipeg man who came to the aid of a woman being attacked outside a McDonald’s restaurant is now being sought by police after his intervention had deadly consequences.
Police say the "Good Samaritan" took off before they arrived at the scene last Sunday evening in the 1000 block of Notre Dame Avenue.
The incident began when a man and a woman got involved in a domestic dispute in the parking lot of the restaurant around 5:30 p.m. That’s when the unknown man came to the woman’s aid, punching the man and knocking him to the ground.
The 33-year-old man, identified as Marlon Dean Laronde (Hart), was rushed to hospital in critical condition and has now died of his injuries.
Members of the homicide unit now need to speak with the man who intervened in the domestic dispute. They are asking him to come forward, along with anyone else who witnessed the incident. Officers can be reached at 204-986-6508.
