A man returning to his home in the RM of St. Clements was robbed and carjacked at gunpoint early Tuesday morning.
The 59-year-old was driving home when he noticed a silver Dodge pickup truck following him at around 2:30 a.m. He pulled into his driveway and the vehicle stopped behind him.
RCMP say one person got out of the truck to ask the man for directions, while four other people sat inside. As the victim was providing directions, two people exited the truck carrying long guns. The victim was ordered to lie on the ground and hand over his car keys and other personal items. The suspects fled in the man’s 2017 blue Nissan Rogue (Manitoba plate EVJ 834), while the other suspects took off in the pickup truck.
- The driver is described as Indigenous, 6’0″ tall with a large frame, light stubble and tattoos covering the left side of his face and neck. He was wearing a light coloured jacket and jeans.
- The passenger seated in the front seat is described as a small, possibly Caucasian female, with long black hair and thick black rimmed glasses.
- The passenger in the backseat who exited with the driver is described as Indigenous with a smaller frame, 5’7”- 5’8” in height, wearing a camouflage face mask, ball cap, dark jacket and jeans.
- Two other passengers in the backseat are described as Indigenous males.
The suspect vehicle is described as a newer silver Dodge pickup truck with an extended cab.
