Two people are in custody after a Monday afternoon carjacking near Cumberland Avenue and Furby Street.

Winnipeg police said the victim, a 27-year-old man, was driving a female acquaintance around when they stopped to pick up another man the victim didn’t know.

Once the man got in the car, he pulled a gun on the driver and ordered him out of the vehicle. The two passengers then fled with the vehicle.
