The suspects fled in the homeowner's vehicle.

Emergency personnel, including WFPS, RCMP and General Patrol officers attended. The female victim was transported to hospital in stable condition.

Officers learned that the female resident went outside in response to her dogs barking. She was confronted by a male who pointed a firearm at her while the other male suspect walked past her and attempted to gain entry to the residence.  The female attempted to run and was seriously assaulted.

The second male suspect entered the residence and assaulted the male victim. The female victim entered the residence and was assaulted by the second male suspect. A female suspect was present at the time of the assaults.

At approximately 7:20 p.m. members of the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) were responding to a call with their emergency equipment activated in the area of Kenaston Blvd and Sterling Lyon Parkway.  The same suspects, operating a motor vehicle, narrowly missed colliding with the WFPS vehicle.

At approximately 7:25 p.m. the suspects were operating the same vehicle at a high rate of speed when they struck a 31-year-old male pedestrian in the area of Cambridge Street and Academy Road.  The victim suffered serious lower body injuries and was treated in hospital.

The suspects continued to drive in a dangerous manner, striking several fences in the area. Officers observed the vehicle in the area of Simcoe Street and Wellington Avenue where they attempted to stop it.
