Winnipeg jewelry store owner beaten during armed robbery
A Winnipeg jewellery store owner was rushed to hospital after being hurt during an armed robbery on Wednesday.
It happened just before 10:30 a.m. at Fort Richmond Jewellers in the 2800 block of Pembina Highway.
They tried to tie up Dan with duct tape but he fought back, Flather said, adding Dan was then hit in the back of the head and cut open.
Flather, who arrived when Dan was being taken away in an ambulance, said his brother was conscious but quite scared.
The robbers smashed open a case full of diamonds before they fled the store, Flather said.
