Charged in Christmas store robbery

A 32-year-old man has been charged with robbing a convenience store on Arlington Street early Christmas Day.

Police responded to a call about 5:30 a.m. regarding an armed man who demanded money at the store in the 800 block of Arlington. He fled on a bike with an undisclosed amount of cash.

An investigation led police to a house on the 700 block of Simcoe Street where officers arrested Walter Guimond and seized a weapon. Guimond remains in police custody.

Meanwhile, a 25-year-old man has been charged in a convenience-store robbery on Christmas Eve.

Winnipeg police arrested the suspect about 2:30 a.m. while he was still at the store on the 1000 block of Henderson Highway.

Adam Bahry is charged with robbery and wearing a disguise. He is also charged with failing to comply with a probation order. Bahry is also charged in a robbery that took place on Dec. 20 at the same location. He remains in police custody.

Five teens accused of car theft

Five teenagers wound up on the naughty list on Christmas Eve after stealing a vehicle and being taken into custody by police that night.

On Dec. 24, a Chevrolet Cavalier was stolen from the 700 block of Alfred Avenue.

Around 10:50 p.m., police spotted the vehicle travelling north on Andrews Street near Flora Avenue. Several patrollers tried to stop the car near McGregor Street and Royal Crescent. The driver rear-ended a police cruiser on Royal Crescent, hit another parked car and continued trying to evade the police.

A 17-year-old girl, two 14-year-old girls, a 14-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl are facing a variety of charges.

Four of the teenagers were released on promises to appear, while the 17 year-old girl remains in custody.

Girls charged with snatching purse

TWO teenage girls from Steinbach have been charged with robbery after they allegedly assaulted another teenager and stole her purse on Christmas Day.

The 14-year-old girl was walking along Main Street shortly before 6 p.m. Wednesday when she was approached by two girls who asked her for cigarettes. She tried to run away but the girls caught up with her and assaulted her before taking her purse, the RCMP said.

With the help of the victim's brother, police found the girls responsible and arrested them.

The victim was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries.
