Winnipeg police have charged a man and a woman after investigators say a woman was shot, assaulted and left in a crashed

Investigators stated that the victim had been at a nearby condo when a man armed with a handgun and a BB gun began chasing and threatening her. The woman was shot and then dragged into the SUV by a female suspect who had joined the armed man. The female suspect drove the SUV into the yard of a nearby home and got stuck. The suspect further assaulted the woman and then fled the scene.

Police said the suspects knew the victim and that the male suspect had also threatened her with a gun a week earlier. Both suspects were found at an apartment in the 200 block of Midwinter Avenue on Thursday afternoon. A woman was arrested in the building, while a man was arrested after he jumped out of a second-story window. The 39-year-old man and 27-year-old woman, both from Winnipeg, are facing a long list of charges and remain in police custody.

This incident is one of many in the city that have been linked to meth use.

In recent months, there has been a rise in reported assaults downtown, which police have attributed to the increase in meth use. Meth is a highly addictive drug that can cause severe health problems, including psychosis and violent behavior.

The incident serves as a reminder of the dangers associated with drug use and the importance of seeking help for addiction. It also highlights the need for increased support and resources for individuals struggling with addiction.
