Police are looking for a male suspect after a residential robbery in the early morning of Feb. 16.
At 1:45 a.m. that day, members of the Winnipeg Police Service were called to a suite in the 1000 Block of Bairdmore Boulevard in response to a report of a robbery.
A male and female were in the suite when they heard a knock at the door. They answered it and the suspect forced his way into the suite, assaulting the male occupant. The female attempted to intervene by biting the suspect’s right hand.
The suspect fled with only a cellphone. The 27-year-old male occupant was transported to hospital in critical condition, but was later upgraded to stable.
The suspect is described as Caucasian, between 20 and 30 years old, 6’0" or taller, with a medium build and very short light brown hair.
An investigation is ongoing by the West District Crime Unit. If anyone has information on the robbery they are asked to contact investigators at 204-986-2877 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
