An 18-year-old Winnipeg man is in custody in connection with a pair of robberies at the same bus stop, police said.

The stop, at Keewatin Street and Burrows Avenue, was the scene of an attack last Wednesday, in which the victim, also 18, was punched and slashed with a knife before being robbed while he was waiting for a bus.
