A loss prevention officer in Portage la Prairie was struck by a car after trying to stop people who left with wagons full of unpaid goods for Sunday night.
The RCMP was called to a store on Sissons Drive at 5:10 pm. Sunday.
Three people were seen leaving the store with two carts full of items. The store's loss prevention officer followed them outside, and were beaten by their vehicles as they fled.
Sunday evening, the RCMP discovered a vehicle that matched what the Defense Chief had seen. They arrested the 26-year-old driver, the only person in the car, but the subsequent investigation led them to a house where they arrested another man, 28, and a woman, 29.
All three were detained in storage. The RCMP continues to investigate.
