Winnipeg, April 3, 2024: The tranquility of a weekday morning in Osborne Street was shattered yesterday when the Winnipeg Police responded to a distress call from the Burger King restaurant at approximately 10:00 a.m. What they encountered upon arrival was a scene of chaos and violence.


On scene police found a 45-year-old male victim who had sustained a severe injury to the upper body in what is believed to be a targeted assault. The suspect, identified as someone known to the victim, had already fled the scene by the time law enforcement arrived.


In a release to media, police said the witnesses reported a tense atmosphere in the area following the assault, with many expressing shock and disbelief at the violence that unfolded in broad daylight.


The Winnipeg Police are urging anyone with information regarding the assault or the whereabouts of the suspect to come forward. They can reach out to investigators directly at 204-986-6219 or provide anonymous tips through Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS or via the website winnipegcrimestoppers.org.


Authorities have not disclosed the identity of the victim or the suspect at this time, pending further investigation. The motive behind the assault remains unclear, adding to the urgency of the police's appeal for information from the public.
