Winnipeggers are being asked to avoid a busy St. Vital street Monday afternoon.

Just before 4 p.m., the Winnipeg Police Service took to social media to ask motorists and pedestrians to avoid Worthington Street, east of St. Mary's Road.

Police also worked with a nearby school to arrange an alternate pick up spot for students.

All they are saying is that there is a police presence in the area.

There is no word on what they're investigating.

More details to come.
