Unfortunately, a crime is on the rise in Winnipeg for the last couple of years. Almost every day the reposts coming in about shots fired, someone gets stabbed or beaten with heavy injuries or even deadly outcome.
Last Friday, November 9th a 27-year-old woman, was walking in the lane between McGee Street and Maryland Street, north of Wellington Avenue at approximately 11:45 p.m.
Three men approached her and demanded her personal property. She was then stabbed “a number of times” before she was pushed to the ground, where the assault continued, said police. Criminals grabbed her personal things and ran away, leaving her on the ground with multiple injuries.
The victim was delivered to a nearby hospital in unstable condition and has since been upgraded to a stable but guarded condition.
On Sunday, November 11th at about 1 a.m., the Major Crimes Unit tracked down three suspects and arrested them on Sherbrook Street. Daniel Joey Bouchie, 20, Shaun William Joseph Cook, 19, and John Henry Sinclair, 19, all face robbery, aggravated assault, and weapons charges.
The investigation still pending, police officers are working with the suspects about the detail of the attack, more information will be released in the official statement from Winnipeg Police after the case is closed.
