Two Arrested after Friday Morning Assault:

On Friday, April 19, 2019, at approximately 5:32 a.m., the Winkler Police Service received a report of an injured male in the area of 3rd Street South and Royal Crescent. Officers and paramedics from Boundary Trails Health Centre arrived on scene and found a 27-year-old male suffering from significant upper body injuries. Paramedics transported the victim to hospital where he received treatment for his injuries.

Shortly after police arrived at 3rd Street South, a number of people believed to have witnessed the incident approached police. After speaking with these individuals, police determined that the victim had been assaulted and that one of these witnesses was in fact a suspect. This suspect was immediately taken into custody.

Officers continued the investigation and determined that the victim had been violently assaulted in retribution for a suspected theft of alcohol from a social gathering at a residence on Royal Crescent.

In addition to the early-morning arrest, at approximately 3:50 p.m., police arrested a second suspect in this assault.

Jonathan Cloude, age 22 of Winkler, has been charged with Aggravated Assault and Breach Probation. He was released before a Judicial Justice of the Peace on a Recognizance with several conditions and he is set to appear in Morden Provincial Court on April 23, 2019.

An 18-year-old female of Winkler will be charged with Assault. She was released on a Promise to Appear in Morden Provincial Court on May 23, 2019. At the time of this writing, she has not been formally charged and her name will not be released.

Motorized Scooter Tips:
With the arrival of warmer temperatures, we can expect the return of persons using motorized mobility aids for travel around town. These are commonly referred to as mobility scooters and are typically a four-wheeled device used by elderly persons or anyone with limited physical mobility. We would like to provide some helpful information not only to the persons using these devices but also to everyone else who shares the roadway with them.

Persons operating a motorized mobility aid should be following the same rules as a pedestrian and not the rules of a motor vehicle. Mobility aids are not intended to be used on the roadway but rather on the sidewalk. However, if a sidewalk is not provided or is not passable then they are allowed to travel on the shoulder of the roadway but must return to the sidewalk at the earliest opportunity. Mobility aids should not be occupying a lane of travel intended for a motor vehicle and when crossing roadways should use the same rules and precautions as a pedestrian.

If someone you know, whether it be a family member or friend, rides a motorized mobility aid please make sure they are aware of the rules regarding their safe use. Here is a link to a Manitoba Public Insurance information page for the safe use of motorized mobility aids:
