On January 28, 2018, at approximately 9:20 p.m., a male suspect entered a convenience store located in the 900 block of Archibald Street. The suspect, who appeared disoriented, attended behind a counter and assaulted two employees.
He then attempted to pull an employee into a bathroom but was unsuccessful. The suspect then locked himself in the bathroom where he armed himself with a metal rod.
One employee suffered minor injuries and members of the Winnipeg Police Service were contacted.
The suspect exited the convenience store and attended to a nearby parking lot where he smashed a window of an unoccupied parked vehicle. He then attended Archibald Street near Elizabeth Avenue where he threw the metal rod at a passing vehicle.
