Winnipeg police have arrested a man after a flower robbery in the Kern Park neighbourhood last Sunday.
Police say a 70-year-old man witnessed his flower pots being stolen at around 7 p.m. from his front yard and confronted the thieves. A male suspect was placing the pots into a vehicle when he closed the trunk on the homeowner’s head and pointed a knife at him.
The suspect, along with a 36-year-old woman, fled with the stolen flowers.
Police arrested a 40-year-old man Tuesday on robbery-related charges. He was released on a promise to appear.
The woman was arrested but released without charges.
