The victim, a 26-year-old man, told police he was walking in the 1100 block of Arlington Street when he was confronted by two males – one armed with a metal pipe. The man was assaulted and robbed.
Tyrell Darril Traverse, 19, and William Wayne Charles Murdock, 22, have been charged with robbery and failure to comply with recognizance. Both men are from Winnipeg.
They remain in custody.
