Officers responded to reports of a stabbing at around 3:50 a.m.

At the scene, they found a 41-year-old suffering from a stab wound. He was taken to hospital in “serious condition.”

Following the incident, a 13-year-old boy was taken into custody while members of the Major Crimes Unit investigated the events.

An update to the report later revealed that the attack occurred after the young teenager entered the convenience store without a face mask or covering. 

“When he was asked to wear one, the youth became upset and stabbed the employee after purchasing several food items,” reads the document. 

“The incident was determined to be unprovoked,” it adds.

The youth was located and arrested by officers at a residence in the West Alexander area of Winnipeg.

He has since been charged with assault with a weapon, as well as aggravated assault.
