A Winnipeg senior was just trying to help. Instead, he was the victim of a robbery.
Around 10:00 p.m. Saturday night, a man rang the doorbell of a home on Horace Street. The owner, a 90-year-old man, opened a side window to talk with the visitor.
He claimed he was having car troubles and needed to use the phone, so the homeowner passed a cordless phone through the window.
The suspect then climbed through the open window and threatened the senior, taking some cash and running off. The victim was not hurt.
The suspect is described a white man in his early 30s with a medium build and short hair. He was wearing a baseball hat with “Canada” on the front, a dark blue t-shirt and blue mitts.
Man Jumped While Waiting For Bus
Around 7 o’clock Monday morning, a 28-year-old man was minding his own business, waiting for the bus at Main and Cathedral.
That’s when another man approached him from behind, grabbed the victim’s sweater and showed off a handgun.
He demanded the victim hand over his property, which he did, giving the suspect cash and his bus pass before the suspect ran off.
The suspect is described as a 5’11” man wearing a black hoodie with a red bandana covering his face, black pants and black gloves.
