According to police, both the victim and the accused were known to frequent that area. There were other people in the bus shelter at the time of the assault.

The incident unfolded in a heavily-trafficked pedestrian area — in front of a restaurant, police said — so there may be other people who have important information.

Anyone with details that might help the investigation is asked to call the homicide unit at 204-986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477).
