WINNIPEG – A serious assault overnight in North Kildonan is now considered a homicide.
It happened at a house on Springfield Road, near River East Collegiate around 3 a.m.
The victim was found with serious injuries and rushed to hospital.
One man has been taken into custody.
Police say they’re still investigating and looking to speak to witnesses.
Darlene Kaus didn’t witness the actual attack but did see some of the aftermath.
She tells us it was important for her to talk to police and share what she saw.
“I was out of danger but I would say as a Winnipegger, we need to get invovled,” says Kaus. “Nobody from the neighbourhood was out there to witness this. We have to start taking better care of each other. It’s scary. If I ever get attacked out there, I don’t think anybody’s going to come to my aid.”
Kaus says the incident has left her shaken and she feels overwhelming sadness.
