Man hurt during robbery

A 39-year-old man was in hospital in stable condition Saturday after he was assaulted Friday night.

The victim was approached around the 300 block of Ross Avenue about 10:50 p.m. by a group of armed suspects who demanded he hand over some property. The suspects escaped after assaulting the man, but police arrested two 18-year-old men a short time later. They are facing robbery charges.

Teen approached

POLICE are warning the public about a suspicious man spotted in the West End Friday night.

A 15-year-old girl was walking in the 300 block of Simcoe Street at around 9:30 p.m. when she noticed a man driving a silver or grey Nissan Rogue. He parked on Simcoe ahead of the teen, got out of the vehicle and approached her.

She didn't respond and continued walking. The man eventually made his way back to his car and left.

Anyone with information concerning the incident is asked to call investigators at 204-986-6688.

The man is described as black, 40 to 50 years old, 5-7 to 5-8 and wearing a longshoreman's-style cap, a brown/beige jacket and pants, and glasses.

Charges laid in assault

A 26-year-old man is facing charges after what police called a serious assault early Saturday.

The Winnipeg Police Service said two men, aged 25 and 26, were drinking in a suite in the 500 block of Burnell Street about 2:50 a.m. when the older man began to assault the other. The 25-year-old man fled on foot, and police were called.

The injured man was found by police in the area of Ellice Avenue and Arlington Street.

He was taken to hospital in stable condition.

Michael McDonald is charged with aggravated assault, forcible confinement and uttering threats. He remains in custody.

Arrest made in bar fight

CITY police have made an arrest in a March bar fight that left a man suffering serious injuries.

Farell Ross, 25, was arrested Saturday and charged with aggravated assault, breach of recognizance and failing to comply with a probation order.

Police say a 60-year-old man was assaulted by two men in the bar in the 700 block of Maryland Street the evening of March 1.

Police released surveillance images of two suspects to the public, and that led to an arrest, the Winnipeg Police Service said in a news release.
