A 1984 Grey Cup ring presented to former Winnipeg Blue Bomber Dan Huclack was stolen during a violent robbery in the city on Monday. Police did not say whether the victim was Huclack. They did not release a name.
According to police, a 53-year-old man was walking on McDermot Avenue near Sherbrook Street just before noon when he was approached by two men. One of the men, believed to be armed with a weapon, demanded money from the man, police said. When he told the two men that he had none, he was kicked in the lower body, police said. Then he was robbed of the ring as well as a bag containing various medications.
The attackers then fled the area, and police were called. The 53-year-old was treated for minor injuries.
