An elderly couple was carjacked on Portage Avenue in Winnipeg Thursday night.

They were confronted by a man just before 7 p.m. in the 1100-block of Portage. They were not hurt but their car was stolen, police said.

The vehicle later crashed into a parked van on Broadway near Donald Street in the downtown area. The man fled the scene but was tracked down by the police canine unit.

No additional information on the charges, or details of the arrest, are known at this time.
