Three employees of a Winnipeg grocery store were taken to hospital and a teenager is facing charges after a violent incident Tuesday evening, police say.

Officers were called to the Foodfare at Portage Avenue and Burnell Street around 6:40 p.m., where they found the three male employees, ages 19, 22, and 46, with upper-body injuries.

According to police, the 17-year-old suspect had been in the store earlier that day and had been escorted out of the building after an unrelated incident. The teen returned to the store later that day, armed with brass knuckles, and assaulted the three victims, police said.

The teen is facing three counts of assault with a weapon, as well as a charge for possessing a prohibited or restricted weapon.
