A 33-year-old man who was carjacked in Transcona in the early hours of Sunday morning was robbed of an undisclosed amount of cash and his vehicle.
Although the suspects said they had a gun, Winnipeg police said the victim was not injured.
The man's car — 2012 blue Mazda3 GS Sky hatchback with Manitoba licence plate number GTX 310 — has not yet been found.
Police said the man, travelling in his car between 3:30 and 4 a.m., was at a four-way stop westbound on Kildare Avenue at Winona Street when an unknown man jumped in front of the victim's vehicle.
Another man climbed into the car through the rear passenger door. The first suspect forced the victim into the passenger seat and began to drive the car.
The two suspects said they had a gun and drove the victim to the south end of the city before stopping near the intersection of Fermor Boulevard and St. Mary's Road.
After they threatened the victim and demanded he give them cash, the suspects drove the victim to a bank in the 1100 block of Pembina Highway where the victim withdrew an undisclosed amount of cash and gave it to the suspects.
The victim was able to escape by running toward another passing vehicle and the suspects drove off in the victim's car.
The first suspect is described as an aboriginal male, 26-30 years of age, about 5-foot-10 inches tall with a heavy build, a shaved head and numerous tattoos on both arms. He was wearing a baseball hat, T-shirt and sandals.
The second suspect was also an aboriginal male and 26-30 years of age but was about 6-foot-2 or 6-foot-3 with a skinny build and short black hair. He was wearing a black T-shirt, a sweater and dark pants.
Anyone who has information about the suspects or the stolen car is asked to call police at 204-986-2857 or CrimeStoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
