WPS Homicide Detectives have put the cuffs on fugitive George Allan Guimond (35) years of Winnipeg who was wanted by police on the strength of a Canada Wide Warrant for manslaughter.
On August 22, 2015, shortly before 5:00 am, emergency services were dispatched to the 100 block of Donwood Drive regarding the report of an injured man.
Upon arrival, a man suffering from apparent stab wounds was located and transported to hospital in critical condition.
The man subsequently died from his injuries.
The deceased was identified as Darryl Arthur Abraham (36) years of Winnipeg.
The investigation continued by members of the Homicide Unit who were able to identify Guimond as a suspect in the killing. Attempts to locate him were unsuccessful and as a result, police obtained a warrant for his arrest.
Police indicate Guimond was collared in the downtown area by members of the Homicide Unit on September 8th.
Guimond was detained in custody.
Police are attempting to identify a taxi cab driver who may have picked up a fare with a bicycle in the area after the incident. Police believe the fare was dropped off in the Dufferin Ave area in the North End.
Police say they are hoping to identify the taxi cab and / or it’s driver.
Anyone with information is requested to call the Homicide Unit at (204) 986-6508 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
George Guimond has had extensive involvement with the WPS over the years and is a “close” associate of the Indian Posse Street Gang.
His involvement with police includes murder charges laid in the 2006 killing of Ryan Neufeld (20) of Winnipeg.
Guimond and crew managed to escape justice in the Neufeld murder when the case crumbled before it went to trial.
Canadian Justice would eventually catch up to Guimond’s brother Michael, a notorious card-carrying member of the Indian Posse Street Gang.
Darryl Abraham was the 16th murder victim reported in Winnipeg in 2015.
He is the 6th victim to die from stab wounds this year.
All but (2) homicides in 2015 have been solved.
Solvency rate 87.5 %.
