On July 3, 2013 at approximately 1:15 a.m., a 60 year old male was assaulted over the head with a wooden baseball bat by an unknown group of young males outside his cottage in the RM of Gimli. One of the suspects broke into the victim’s vehicle attempting to steal some articles from the trunk when the victim exited from the residence. The suspect then fled. Another suspect pretended to be looking for a young group of males who stole his quad. The suspects returned to the victim’s driveway and assaulted the victim with a bat causing minor injuries. The suspects are not identified but are described to be about 16 years old. The suspect who assaulted the victim is described as a dark male, and has a small mustache. The suspects may have fled on a quad.

By providing information that Crime Stoppers will share with law enforcement agencies, you are providing an important and valuable public service. We understand that disclosure of your identity might put you at risk. We do everything we can to protect your anonymity. However, that anonymity may be open to challenge in the following situations:
- A call to Crime Stoppers made with the intention of “furthering criminal activity or interfering with the administration of justice”. A party who is guilty of a crime cannot use Crime Stoppers to try to divert the blame onto someone else. Crime Stoppers cannot be used to try to “frame” an innocent person.
- There is evidence that disclosure of some or all of a tip is necessary to establish someone’s innocence.
- A tipster having received the benefit of full legal advice may, for his or her own reasons, elect to waive the privilege.
