Winnipeg police tracked down three robbery suspects in Transcona quickly last week.
On June 18 around 12:30 a.m., a 23-year-old man was robbed by three male suspects in the area of McMeans Avenue East and Kildare Avenue East. The three suspects, two of whom were armed, demanded personal property from the victim, who was not injured.
The three suspects were arrested after General Patrol, Canine, and Tactical Support Team units searched the area.
A 16- and a 17-year-old suspect were detained at the Manitoba Youth Centre and were charged with robbery related offences. The other 16-year-old was released on a promise to appear and is also facing robbery-related charges.
