WINNIPEG – Police in Winnipeg have two men in custody following a stabbing.

On May 24, 2019, at approximately 1:30 am, members of the Winnipeg Police Service were in the area of Salter Street and Selkirk Avenue when they were flagged down and came upon the victim of a stabbing.

The victim, a 31-year-old male, was found suffering from significant injuries. Officers began applying first aid, and the victim was transported to the hospital in critical condition. He was later upgraded to stable condition.

Witnesses in the area reported seeing two males fled the area after the stabbing. Officers located two male suspects in the area and gave chase after they fled. One male was taken into custody in the 400 block of Redwood Avenue, and the other was taken into custody in the 400 block of College Avenue. Two knives were seized – one from each suspect.

It was determined that the stabbing had occurred in the 300 block of Pritchard Avenue.

Members of the Major Crimes Unit continued with the investigation and believe that a 26-year-old female had been walking in the area when two males began to follow her. One suspect attempted numerous times to strike up a conversation with the female. After she arrived at the residence on Pritchard Avenue, the male victim went outside to confront the two suspects who were still in the area at which time the male victim was stabbed. During the incident, the female was threatened and assaulted but did not require medical treatment. The victims did not know the suspects.

Jeremiah Keegan Nepinak, an 18-year-old male of Winnipeg, has been charged with:

– Aggravated Assault

– Possession of a Weapon

A 14-year-old male of Winnipeg has been charged with:

Both suspects were detained in custody. None of the charges have been proven in court.
