Man intentionally hit by vehicle over weekend: Winnipeg police

WINNIPEG — A man was sent to hospital on Saturday after Winnipeg police said he was intentionally hit by a car.

Police said the incident happened around 4:45 p.m. in the 500 block of Stella Avenue.

When officers arrived, they found a severely injured man in his 30s and began to apply emergency first aid. The man was taken to hospital in critical condition and was later upgraded to stable condition.

The car involved in the incident left the scene before officers arrived.

Police said investigators believe the man was intentionally hit by the vehicle, which police later found abandoned in the Dufferin area.

Police charged a 26-year-old man with aggravated assault late Saturday night. He has been detained in custody. The charges have not been proven in court.

Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact investigators in the Major Crimes Unit at 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).

The Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) had a busy weekend dealing with an arrest following the use of an improvised gun and a search warrant that tactical support helped with.

According to police, at 8:16 p.m. WPS members along with AIR1 were called to the 500 block of Spence Street for a report that an occupied vehicle was shot at.
