A 59-year-old Winnipeg man is in the hospital recovering after he was assaulted and robbed leaving a financial institution on Sunday.
At roughly 6:30 p.m. on September 18, the Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) responded to the report of a male in distress in a back alley in the 500 block of Balmoral Street.
Central District General Patrol officers located an unconscious 59-year-old adult male suffering from upper body injuries. Officers provided emergency medical care before paramedics arrived. The male was transported to hospital initially in unstable condition and was later upgraded to stable.
Investigators learned the victim had attended a nearby financial institution accompanied by an adult female known to him and withdrew cash. After leaving the bank, they walked northbound on Balmoral Street when an unknown adult male confronted him. He was assaulted and robbed of his money, and the suspect fled.
The investigation continues with the Major Crimes Unit, and no arrests have been made.
