Four people from Ontario have been charged after a stabbing at a Winnipeg restaurant.
Police say four employees were stabbed Saturday just before 6 a.m. at the establishment in the 500 block of Sargent Avenue.
Four men, aged 32, 35, 37, and 44, were sent to hospital after the patrons were asked to leave by an employee. One of the employees was stabbed and another also slashed when attempting to assist the first victim. Two other employees suffered stab wounds while trying to help their co-workers.
All four victims were taken to hospital in various conditions, including one in critical.
During the assault, a female suspect stole keys to a Dodge Charger to facilitate the group’s getaway. Two of the suspects were able to reach the vehicle, while another was arrested at the scene.
Police caught up to the vehicle in the 1400 block of Portage Avenue after it hit a concrete barrier.
Mohamed Abdulle, 22, and Tristen Tevone Bailey, 22, both from Toronto, Tashari Carmen Edith Bennett, 25, of Mississauga, Ont. and Raheem Thomas-Stewart, 19, of Brampton, Ont. have all been charged with numerous offences including attempted murder, aggravated assault and two counts of assault causing bodily harm.
They remain in custody.
