Two men facing charges after a carjacking and home invasions: Winnipeg police

WINNIPEG — Two men from Winnipeg are facing multiple charges following an alleged carjacking and two home invasions Monday afternoon.

Police said the carjacking happened around 3:25 p.m., near Rue Despins and Rue Jeanne d’Arc. A 53-year-old man and his 17-year-old daughter were walking to their vehicle when police said they were confronted and had their vehicle stolen.

Police said during the robbery, the man was threatened by a suspect, and while driving away, the driver of the stolen vehicle crashed into another car.

Police then said around 5 p.m., the suspects went to a building in the 400 block of Maryland Street and invaded two neighbouring suites.

Police said three men between the ages of 27 and 54-years-old were robbed at gunpoint and when the suspect tried to drive away, they hit a nearby car, a construction loader, and a garage.

As the suspects drove away from the area, they passed a police car. Police said the suspects started driving at a high rate of speed to elude the officers.

The suspects abandoned the vehicle in a nearby back lane and were eventually arrested after being chased on foot.

Officers searched the vehicle and found a sawed-off .22 calibre rifle, a paintball gun, and two knives.

Police believe the suspects were under the influence of a drug and that they were unknown to the victims.
