A suspect wanted in connection with several robberies has been arrested by Winnipeg police.

Allen John Wuss, a 28-year-old Winnipeg resident, was arrested shortly after a robbery occurred at a restaurant in the 2100 block of McPhillips Street on Dec. 4.

Police were dispatched to the restaurant at approximately 9 p.m. after receiving a report of the robbery. Police were told a lone male, armed with a weapon and with his identity concealed, entered the restaurant. The man demanded and received an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing on foot. The restaurant employee was not injured.

Shortly afterward, responding officers found a man matching the description of the suspect and arrested him without incident. After further investigation, members of the Major Crimes Unit have linked the suspect with five other crimes.

The first was a commercial break and enter at a grocery store in the 1000 block of Main Street on June 19, with the second occurring sometime between Aug. 5 and 9 at a residence in the 1000 block of Taylor Avenue. The next one was a commercial robbery at a restaurant in the 200 block of Henderson Highway on Nov. 6, and was followed up with commercial robberies at a store in the 1500 block of Main Street on Dec. 2 and in the 1600 block of Main Street on Dec. 4.

Wuss has been charged with four counts of Armed Robbery, four counts of Disguise with Intent, a Count of Break, Enter, and Commit – Place, and one count of Break, Enter, and Commit – Dwelling House for his alleged involvement.

He was detained at the Provincial Remand Centre.
