Sixth robbery suspect surrenders

  • Print

Winnipeg police report a sixth suspect in a strong-arm robbery near Polo Park earlier this month has turned himself in.

The incident occurred July 12 at approximately 4 p.m., when three people (two women and a man, all 18 years old) were walking in the Omand's Creek area under the railway bridge east of Empress Street. The group was confronted by several suspects and held at knifepoint for more than 90 minutes. The victims were threatened and assaulted and eventually robbed of their cellphones, identification, cash and bank cards.

Earlier this month, four males between the ages 16 and 19 were arrested. A fifth person, a 21-year-old man, turned himself in to police Monday.

Winnipeg police issued an arrest warrant for a sixth suspect, 18-year-old Joseph Jordan Henderson, who turned himself in Tuesday. He is facing numerous robbery and confinement charges.
