Winnipeg Police Logo CrestWinnipeg police have arrested and charged a man after a robbery and stolen vehicle pursuit last week.

A beer vendor in the 2100 block of McPhillips Street was robbed at gunpoint on May 22, with the two suspects fleeing in a stolen vehicle.

At around 1:30 a.m. on May 23, police spotted the vehicle in the St. John’s neighbourhood and began a pursuit. The driver lost control about five minutes later on the highway ramp between the eastbound lanes of the Perimeter Highway and the southbound lanes of Main Street.


The driver attempted to run from the crash, but was taken into custody and transported to hospital in critical condition.

Steven Raymond Johnston, 25, faces numerous charges and remains in hospital.
