Winnipeg police say three teens were robbed on their way to school Thursday in the Elmwood area.

According to police, the teens were walking near Chalmers Avenue between 8:30 and 9 a.m. when they were separately confronted by a man with a weapon. He demanded all of their personal property and fled the scene.

No injuries were reported and the school sent out a notification to families.

The suspect was described as wearing a ski mask and a dark jacket with the hood pulled up.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at (204) 986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS.
