Before he could get away, an employee and another man attempted to hold the suspect for police. During the struggle, one man was stabbed and sent to hospital in critical condition. He was since upgraded to stable.
An 18-year-old Winnipeg man has been charged with robbery, aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, disguise with intent and assault.
He remains in custody.
