Crime is on the rise in Canada for the last couple of years. Car theft, drugs, property theft, and property damage…the list goes on and on. More and more calls about robbery and break-ins coming to police every day. Sometimes criminals get away with what they did, but some cases get solved and arrests are made even months after the incident.
As per multiple reports and witnesses, a man was threatening people during the past month. Luckily police had arrested the suspect and now Winnipeg streets are safer for the law-abiding citizens.
A 23-year-old Darnell Tyrin Anase Rae has been charged with two counts of carrying a concealed weapon, two counts of unauthorized possession of a firearm, six counts of pointing a firearm, possessing a loaded prohibited firearm, three counts of failing to comply with probation, mischief under $5,000, and unauthorized possession of a firearm in a motor vehicle.
Police said the man was found at a home in the 500 block of Magnus Avenue Wednesday morning, where he pulled up his jacket to show officers a firearm just prior to being arrested.
Police said the man was involved in an incident at the same Magnus Avenue address earlier in the month, where he forced five people to their knees and pointed the gun at their heads before fleeing. He’s also suspected of a January 30th incident, also on Magnus Avenue, where a rifle was pulled on a taxi driver.
If you or anyone you know became victims of a similar situation, please contact your local police department to find out if the person arrested was involved in the incident, also police might need your statement for prosecution and future court hearing.
