Movie scene stormed by Winnipeg police

Two men have just robbed a bank.
They are covered in blood and are racing through the streets with a van full of guns
That's the scene two actors were in the middle of playing when they were surrounded by real Winnipeg police officers with real guns.
"We heard drop your bleeping weapons and kind of looked in the rearview mirror," said actor Patrick Flueger.
"They asked me to back up towards them and (they) kept their gun trained on me."
The drama unfolded on Saturday afternoon after police were called to a TD Bank branch on Osborne Street with reports of a robbery and bomb threat.
Officials say a man claiming to have a bomb in a box managed to get away from the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The area was closed off for most of the afternoon as police investigated the robbery and a bomb squad examined the suspicious package left in the bank.
A few hours later a film crew was in the middle of shooting a scene for the new horror flick 'Mother's Day' when they found themselves in the middle of a real bank robbery investigation.
The group was eventually able to produce film permits and clear up the situation.
The real bank robbery suspect is still at large.
