Monday, July 11, 2022 - Shortly after midnight on Saturday, Winnipeg Police responded to the area of Wilkes Avenue and Community Row regarding a stabbing that had just occurred.

Winnipeg Police arrived in the area but could not locate anyone. Police say they travelled south on Community Row, a gravel road, for approximately two kilometers until they were flagged down by several teenagers who advised that their friend had been stabbed and that they would have to locate him some distance away on foot in a heavily-bushed and muddy area.

The two officers gathered their medical equipment and set out approximately one kilometer on foot until they located the victim (an 18-year-old male) suffering from significant stab wound injuries. The officers provided medical assistance.
