Suspect Sought in Winnipeg Attack on Senior

Suspect in Attack on Senior

WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Police Service is asking for help from the public to locate a suspect following an attack on a senior who had been taking his dog for an early-morning walk near Burrows Avenue and Charles Street in early September.

The WPS Major Crimes Unit says they determined that the victim, a man in his seventies, was confronted by an unknown woman who began yelling and swearing at him. Without provocation, police say the victim was then attacked with a knife by two men who came from across the street.

Investigators say the assault continued while the victim lay on the ground, and the suspects fled on foot before the victim was taken to hospital in unstable condition and sustained life-altering injuries.

On Sunday 20-year-old Jade Noelle Brown was found as a suspect and taken into custody, charged with aggravated assault, and detained in custody.

A second suspect has been identified as 20-year-old Cordell Lionel Thomas, and a warrant for his arrest has been issued.

The Major Crimes Unit is asking anyone with information on the whereabouts of Thomas to call them at 204-986-6219 or call 911 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
