Selkirk RCMP have arrested three men following a robbery in Selkirk.

The incident transpired at 4:30 p.m. on June 28 as Selkirk RCMP received a report that two males were walking into a business on Manitoba Avenue in Selkirk and filling two bags with merchandise. When confronted by employees, they threatened them with a knife. Nobody was physically injured.

A short time later, officers located and arrested a second man, a 32-year-old from Yorkton, Saskatchewan, and then a third man, a 39-year-old from Winnipeg. All were found in separate locations. The 32-year-old was arrested on an outstanding warrant but was not charged in relation to the Selkirk armed robbery.

The 23-year-old is charged with Robbery with Offensive Weapon, Uttering Threats Against a Person x3, and Possession of a Weapon for Dangerous Purposes.

The 39-year-old is charged with Robbery.

All three have been released from custody.
