Kids Robbed on Their Way to School

Winnipeg Police CrestTwo kids on their way to school were robbed in separate, but similar incidents on Monday morning.

Winnipeg police say the first victim was a 12-year-old boy who was confronted in the area of Roch Street and Chalmers Avenue at around 8 a.m. The suspect was armed with a weapon and demanded the victim’s personal property before fleeing in a grey four-door Honda Civic.

Roughly 15 minutes later, a 16-year-old boy accompanied by two youths was approached in the area of Kimberly Avenue and Roch Street. Again, the suspect was armed with a weapon and made off with personal property from the victim before leaving in a Civic.

Neither of the boys were injured in the robberies.

The suspect in both cases is described as aboriginal in appearance, between the ages of 18-25, and about 6-feet tall. He also has a slight beard or goatee.

Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators at (204) 986-2857 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPPS (8477).
