On May 11, at around 10:00 p.m., Selkirk RCMP received a call for a robbery at a retail store on Manitoba Avenue. It was reported that a Loss Prevention Officer had been threatened with a knife before the suspects fled in a black SUV, leaving carts full of merchandise behind.

Officers arrived and located the black SUV at the intersection of Manitoba Avenue and Highway 9. A traffic stop was initiated.

The 66-year-old woman, driving the SUV, from Steinbach was found to have a warrant for her arrest for Theft Under $5000. The front-seat passenger, a 51-year-old woman from Bloodvein First Nation, was found to have a warrant for her arrest for Taking a Motor Vehicle Without Consent. Another passenger, Maureen Young, 31-year-old woman from Winnipeg, was identified as the individual who had wielded the knife. All three females, as well as a 43-year-old man, were taken into custody for multiple separate offences and active warrants.
