Police have arrested two male youth for their alleged involvement in a recent restaurant robbery in St. Vital.

As recently reported, members of the Winnipeg Police Service responded to a report of a commercial robbery in the 1000-block of St. Mary’s Road at around 9 p.m. on Dec. 30.

Officials say two males with their identities concealed entered the restaurant and one of the suspects ordered some food. When the clerk opened the cash register, the second male sprayed her with a noxious substance while the first male grabbed an undisclosed amount of money. Both suspects then fled on foot.

The 17-year-old clerk was treated for non-life threatening injuries. A second employee was not injured.

The investigation continued by members of the Major Crimes Unit, and on Jan. 8 two 17-year-old males from Winnipeg were arrested for their alleged involvement. Both have been charged with robbery, disguise with intent and unauthorized possession of a prohibited or restricted weapon.

Police say the two males were detained at the Manitoba Youth Centre.
