Carjacking suspect sought after high-speed chase

A high-speed chase resulted in the destruction of two hydro poles near Kildonan Park early Thursday morning.

The incident started in Selkirk, when local RCMP responded to a report of a carjacking on Main Street at around 2:30 a.m. Police say a male suspect stole a car after threatening the victim with a knife. The victim was unharmed in the encounter.

The suspect proceeded to head down Highway 9 towards Winnipeg. RCMP officers pursued the vehicle and notified the Winnipeg Police Service when the suspect approached the city.

At approximately 3 a.m., the suspect lost control of the vehicle, crossed the median and struck two hydro poles near the corner of Main Street and Templeton Avenue.

The suspect then left the vehicle and ran toward Kildonan Park.

Winnipeg police and the RCMP, with the help of the WPS canine unit, continue Thursday to search for the suspect.

 

Earlier starts ruled out at four WSD schools

Winnipeg School Division has dropped plans to start classes at 8:15 a.m. at four schools next fall after hearing from parents.

The schools are Lord Roberts, J.B. Mitchell, Brock Corydon and Greenway. Still under consideration for an early start in September are George V, Clifton, Victoria-Albert, Prairie Rose and Shaughnessy Park schools.

WSD trustees had proposed possible early starts as a cost-saving measure so school buses could serve two schools each morning rather than one.
