Winnipeg Police Service Major Crimes Unit is investigating an armed home invasion that happened late Friday night, April 24, 2020.
Police say a woman was taking out her garbage from a home in the 200 block of Edison Avenue when a male came to the backdoor of the home and forced his way inside.
The suspect was holding a knife in his hand and demanding money from the victim.
Other people inside the home became aware of the intruder which caused the suspect to flee empty-handed.
Police say that the female victim was injured during the encounter but did not require medical attention.
The suspect is described as a male in his mid-to-late 20s, about six feet tall, average build, clean-shaven with a dark complexion. He was wearing a black jacket and a baseball cap.
Anyone with information that can help investigators is asked to call the Major Crimes Unit at 204-986-6219 or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-TIPS (8477)
