A woman who had her vehicle stolen on Monday evening has been reunited with her two small dogs, who happened to be inside at the time of the theft.
Winnipeg police say the woman, in her mid-thirties, had left her vehicle running at the rear of her home in the 400 block of Furby Street at around 6 p.m. She came outside to find a man attempting to drive it away. She was dragged a short distance trying to stop the suspect and suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Police found the stolen vehicle a few blocks away and the woman’s dogs were returned to her unharmed.
A man in his mid-twenties faces charges of robbery, assault with a weapon and two counts of theft.
