For Immediate Release

Search Warrant/Armed and Barricaded – Arrests: C17-190648

During the morning of August 26, 2017, members of the Street Crime Unit, with the assistance of the Tactical Support Team, attended a residence in the 500 block of Sherbrook Street to execute a search warrant related to a drug and firearms investigation involving a known 33-year-old male who also the subject of an arrest warrant.

At approximately 10:45 a.m., this male was observed driving a truck in the area along with a male passenger. An attempt was made to stop the vehicle; however, it fled the area at a high rate of speed and struck an adult female cyclist at Arlington Street and Logan Avenue. After hitting the cyclist, the vehicle then struck a taxicab and continued to flee.

Police attended to the female who was transported to hospital and later released with minor injuries. The driver of the taxicab did not suffer any injuries.

The pursuit ended shortly thereafter and the truck was located abandoned in a back lane of the 1400 block of Magnus Avenue. It was quickly determined that the two suspects had fled into a nearby residence.

A short time later, a 22-year-old male attempted to run out the back of the residence and was taken into custody. He was found to be the subject of a Canada-wide arrest warrant.

The homeowner and lawful occupants of the residence were safely evacuated. The remaining suspect, who was believed to be armed, refused to exit. The house was surrounded and the armoured rescue vehicle was deployed.

After an approximate 9 hour stand-off with repeated demands for the suspect to exit the residence, the Tactical Support Team was able to safely take the suspect into custody.

A 33-year-old male and a 22-year-old male, both of Winnipeg, have been arrested and are facing a number of charges. The investigation is continuing.

The Winnipeg Police Service wishes to thank the public for their understanding and patience while efforts were made to bring this situation to a safe conclusion.
