Winnipeg Police Service Media Release
For Immediate Release

Assault with a Weapon – Arrest: C19-30594

On February 11, 2019, at approximately 2:30 p.m., North District General Patrol units, with the assistance of the Tactical Support Team and School Resource Officers, responded to St. John’s High School at 401 Church Avenue for a report of a stabbing.

Upon arrival, two injured male teenagers were located and transported to hospital in stable condition. It was determined a short time later that one of the two male teenagers did not require further medical attention.

At approximately 3:00 p.m., a male teenager suspect was located and placed under arrest at a residence in the William Whyte neighbourhood.

Members of the Major Crimes Unit continued with the investigation and believe that the teenagers were engaged in a mutual fight which resulted in one male producing a knife that injured the two others.

A 14-year-old male of Winnipeg has been arrested for:

- Assault with a Weapon
- Possession of a Weapon

He was released on a Promise to Appear.


Drug Offence – Arrest: C19-30206

On February 11, 2019, at approximately 1:15 a.m., a taxicab attended the area of Burrows Avenue and Salter Street to pick up a fare. A male, along with two females, entered the cab and the male demanded the cab driver take him to various locations throughout the city. When the driver refused, the male began to yell and hit the protective shield. The driver, fearing he was going to be assaulted, flagged down a passing North District General Patrol supervisor.

As the officer approached the taxicab to speak with the male passenger, the male fled on foot. While being chased, the male dropped $140 in Canadian currency and began to discard several layers of clothing.

The male was tracked to a yard in the 400 block of Manitoba Avenue where a conducted electrical weapon (“Taser”) was used to safely take the male into custody. A search of the male resulted in the seizure of 13.4 grams of methamphetamine (estimated street value of $2,010).

Jason Shawn Miller, a 33-year-old male of Winnipeg, has been charged with:

- Possession of a Scheduled Substance for the Purpose of Trafficking – Methamphetamine

He was detained in custody.
