The WPS has concluded the investigation of the assault of a young boy after he was sent to the hospital with serious injuries.
On May 7, 2023, at approximately 1:30 a.m., the Winnipeg Police Service responded to an assault outside an East Kildonan residence near McLeod Ave and Louelda Street.
Police located the victim, an adolescent male, lying on the ground with serious injuries. He was transported to the hospital in unstable condition, treated, and later upgraded to a stable condition.
Witnesses in the area indicated the victim was assaulted on the ground by a group of individuals outside a residence who subsequently fled.
The Major Crimes Unit has assumed the investigation and identified two male youths and a female youth believed to be involved in the incident. On May 11, investigators arrested all three suspects without incident.
