Mischief Arrest - C17-34770

During the early morning hours of February 18, 2017, a suspect was observed tagging several businesses, parkades, signals and other buildings with spray paint in the downtown area.

A member of the Downtown Watch observed some of the offences and notified members of the Winnipeg Police Service immediately.

Officers attended and began searching the area. At approximately 3:35 a.m., Division 11 uniform patrol located the suspect tagging a building located in the 400 block of Portage Avenue.

Kassie Ashley HOMINIUK, 21 years old of Winnipeg has been charged with the following due to her alleged involvement:

Mischief Under $5000.00/Obstruct in Enjoyment x 42
Possession of a Weapon
Possession of a Scheduled Substance (Cannabis)

The investigation has revealed that approximately 27 properties were found to have sustained damage.

Some of the areas are as follows:

200 block of Kennedy Street
400 block of Graham Avenue
200 block of Vaughan Street
400 block of Portage Avenue
200 block of Hargrave Street
200 block of Donald Street 
200 block of Garry Street

Hominuk was remanded into custody.


In December 2016, the Winnipeg Police Service launched its downtown safety strategy, called Centreline.

Centreline redefines police response to crime and disorder through community engagement, crime analysis, problem-oriented policing and proactive policing principles (SPI-Smart Policing Initiative), as well as public education campaigns.

This strategy, along with the relationships we have with our partners, will continue to have a positive impact on downtown by reducing the risk, frequency and severity of crime and social disorder, and in effect, enhancing public safety.

Constable Jason Michalyshen, Public Information Officer
