Knife-wielding invader breaks into North Kildonan home, demands money
Man was scared off by people in house after Friday night break-in on Edison near Henderson Highway: police
Winnipeg police say a North Kildonan woman was the victim of a home invasion late Friday night, and they're now looking for the man responsible.
Just before midnight, officers responded to a report of an armed break-in on Edison Avenue near Henderson Highway.
A woman who lived at the home was coming back inside from taking out the garbage when a man with a knife forced his way in through the back door of the house and demanded money, police said in a Saturday news release.
Other people who live in the house realized what was happening, and the man ran away empty-handed, police said. The woman was injured but didn't need medical attention.
Police are looking for a man in his mid-to-late 20s who has an average build and is about six feet tall. He was wearing a black jacket and baseball cap and was clean-shaven, police said.
Anyone with information about the home invasion is asked to call the Winnipeg Police Service's major crimes unit at 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477.
