Two men are in jail after police were called to the scene of a stabbing and linked two suspects to a commercial robbery on October 5, 2013.
Winnipeg police made the arrests Saturday night at a residence in the 1000 block of Selkirk Avenue.
Officers were called in when a man was stabbed multiple times in the upper body following an altercation involving an armed suspect.
The victim was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
While on scene officers were able to link the involved parties to a grocery store robbery in the 900 block of Selkirk Avenue around 7:30 p.m. that night.
It was reported to city police a 23-year-old store clerk had been approached by an armed suspect who drew a weapon and demanded cash while another suspect stood watch.
When no cash was handed over, the suspects fled the scene with stolen merchandise, and made their way to the residence where the stabbing ensued.
No arrests have been made in connection with the stabbing, but 24-year-old Henry Duck of Winnipeg has been charged with robbery with a weapon and breach of probation.
26-year-old Jonah Gerard Moody of Winnipeg has also been charged with robbery with a weapon, possession of a weapon, and disguise with intent.
Both are at the Provincial Remand Centre.
The major crimes unit continues to investigate.
