Trash truck hits, hurts man

A garbage truck struck a man late Monday morning in the 100 block of Spence Street.

The victim, believed to be in his 20s, was initially taken to hospital in unstable condition. Winnipeg police will likely release more information this morning.

Manitoba Workplace Safety and Health is looking into the incident.

 

Armed store robber sought

TREHERNE RCMP are looking for a woman who allegedly held up a store in Notre Dame de Lourdes Saturday night while armed with a rifle.

Sgt. Rob Lockhart said police were called about 9:30 p.m. Saturday.

"A lone female had entered a business brandishing a rifle. The female fled the location with an undisclosed amount of cash and cigarettes, heading westbound on Notre Dame Avenue West on foot. There were no injuries."

Lockhart described the suspect as "about five-foot-two with a chubby build. She was wearing a black hoodie with a black-and-red bandana which was covering her face to her eyes."

 

Homeowner helps nab pair

BRANDON -- A homeowner called 911 about 9 p.m. Saturday to inform police two youths were breaking into vehicles in the 1000 block of 11th Street.

The caller then went outside and caught one of the suspects, a female under 18, while a male got away. When police arrived, they found she was not responsible for the crime and was just out walking with the second suspect.

She was in a "highly intoxicated state," police said in a release, and was charged with underage drinking.

The police K-9 unit found a second youth hiding under a car a short distance away and charged him with theft and underage drinking.
