Teenage girls attacked, robbed woman after getting off bus in south Winnipeg: police

Three Winnipeg teenage girls were arrested and facing charges in connection with a robbery that left a woman with injuries last week.

The incident occurred on Pembina Highway in south Winnipeg around 1:30 a.m. on Friday, according to police.

Investigators believe the three teenagers – two 16-year-olds and a 13-year-old – were on a bus with the 23-year-old victim.

Investigators say the victim got off the bus, and the three accused followed her. Police say they “attacked her without provocation” and robbed her.

One of the teenagers allegedly brandished a knife during the robbery.

Police don’t believe the suspects knew the victim.

It’s the latest incident in a string armed robberies, aggravated assaults, shootings and stabbings involving teenagers in Winnipeg.

Community outreach workers say the spring spike in crime in the city is alarming.

Officers arrived on the scene to find the victim suffering from injuries. She was treated by ambulance personnel.

Winnipeg police say they arrested two of the teenage suspects in the Wildwood Park area.

The WPS investigation continued, and a third suspect was arrested at her home Saturday.


All three girls are facing robbery charges. The two 16-year-olds are facing possession of a weapon charges.

One of the 16-year-olds is facing a charge of failure to comply with a probation order.

The suspects were released on undertakings.
