Two robbery suspects, one from Winnipeg and the other from Selkirk, were arrested on Monday night in Steinbach after police were dispatched to a report of an armed robbery at 7 p.m. on Main Street.

Steinbach RCMP said in a release on Tuesday afternoon that the masked suspects, armed with a knife, threatened to stab an adult male if he did not give them his cell phone and money.
