Student Confronted at Knifepoint in Whyte Ridge


WINNIPEG, MB. - On April 29, 2021, at approximately 8:45 a.m., a youth, while en route to school, was confronted at knifepoint by two unknown suspects in the Whyte Ridge neighbourhood.


They demanded his bike and money and subsequently fled the area. The youth was not physically injured; and immediately reported the incident to the school principal, who contacted police.


Winnipeg Police Service School Resource officers are working collaboratively with the Pembina Trails School Division to investigate this incident and provide follow-up and safety messaging for all community members.


The suspects are described as two males in their late teens: 6’0” and 5’9” in height, both wearing ski-mask-type coverings on their faces.

This is an opportunity for parents and caregivers to remind their children to be alert, travel with a friend, use well-lit paths and report suspicious or criminal activity that you see or experience.
