Winnipeg police say the victims came across an elderly woman being robbed by a female suspect at around 9 p.m. The pair intervened but were assaulted with a weapon and both suffered significant injuries. The suspect then fled the scene.
A woman in her 50s was taken to hospital in unstable condition and later upgraded to stable. A man in his 50s was also sent to hospital in stable condition.
