Man Arrested for 7 Robberies

WINNIPEG - Police have arrested and charged a Winnipeg man they believe is responsible for seven robberies, all following a similar pattern, dating all the way back to 2009, including a brazen bank robbery Thursday night.

Police said they responded to a robbery at a financial institution in the 100 block of St Anne's Road around 8:00 PM. A man wearing a disguise to hide his face, and armed with a knife, confronted a woman teller and demanded money. She complied and he took off.

About two hours later police located the suspect at a home on Kettering Street, at which time he was taken into custody without issue.

Police have since determined that the suspect was also responsible for six other robberies.

  • January 12, 2009 at a restaurant in the 200 block of Hargrave Street.
  • February 28, 2018, at approximately 7:45 PM a financial institution was robbed in the 1300 block of Pembina Hwy.
  • March 7, 2018, at approximately 8:00 PM there was an attempted robbery of another financial institution in the 1200 block of Grant Avenue. Armed with a knife he approached a female teller and demanded money. The teller advised that she needed to ask a manager at which time the manager pushed the suspect out the door, locked it and notified police. No money was obtained.
