Winnipeg woman nabbed in connection with 3 gas bar robberies
A 35-year-old woman is being held in custody facing numerous charges including robbery, police say
Winnipeg police have arrested a 35-year-old woman after three separate gas bar incidents this weekend.
On Friday night a Domo on Watt Street was hit when an armed woman made off with an undisclosed amount of cash, cigarettes and other merchandise.
And on Saturday, the suspect came back to rob the same location.
Constable Jason Michalyshen said police received a call to the Watt Street Domo gas bar to investigate the second robbery.
"We received another report that the same female attended to the same gas bar and confronted the same victim,” said Michalyshen.
Police said the suspect was unable to gain entry and eventually fled the scene in a vehicle.
Shortly thereafter a gas bar on Henderson Highway was robbed.
Police soon pulled over a vehicle on Grey Street and Talbot Avenue in Elmwood where they arrested the suspect, who now faces numerous charges.
There were no injuries in any of the robberies.
