Winnipeg Police says it will improve security services of sites for online buyers and sellers.
Recently there was an incident. A man from Winnipeg became a victim of a robbery on Monday evening.
Police said the man, who is 36, responded to an online ad and went to a place where he agreed to meet with a person to buy some goods. It was in Selkirk Avenue and McKenzie Street at around 8 pm on Monday.
During the transaction, the person took out a gun and ordered the man to move away from his car.
No one was hurt, but his car, four-door Ford Explorer of blue colour was stolen. The Police searched the area but they could not find the stolen car.
One of the Police officers informed that the idea of creating a place for buyers and sellers where they can meet and have some police protection is discussed by Winnipeg Police. He also added that this year they have seen much more robberies during Internet sales in comparison with the previous years.
There are no deadlines in the project, but the Police hopes to come to the solution of the problem in the near future.
The Police continue to search for the stolen car and ask all people who have any useful information to help the investigation.
