Several Teens Arrested after 3 Teenaged Boys Attacked & Robbed at Polo Park Mall


Tuesday, August 15, 2023 - Winnipeg Police continue to investigate a violent robbery involving several teenagers at Polo Park Mall on Friday, August 11th.


Police said they received the call shortly after 6:00 pm on Friday evening to Polo Park about a group of teens who had been assaulted and robbed by another group of teenaged suspects.

Upon arrival police found two 16-year-old male victims and one 15-year-old male victim suffering from minor injuries inside the mall. The victims did not require medical attention for their injuries.

In a coordinated effort with the Tactical Support Team and the K-9 Unit, officers arrested eight youths aged thirteen to seventeen in the vicinity. Officers recovered a large knife and an imitation Glock 19 CO2 firearm nearby and seized them as evidence.

The Major Crimes Unit assumed the investigation and learned two groups of youths were involved in a verbal confrontation which escalated with one group physically assaulting three victims who had taken refuge in a retail business. One accused presented a concealed firearm before the assault, and another robbed one of the victims of his cellular phone.

The victims and the suspects were not previously known to one another.

The Major Crimes Unit continues its investigation. Anyone with information that may assist investigators is asked to call 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477) or online at winnipegcrimestoppers.org.
