On January 22, 2018, at approximately 6:20 pm, Flin Flon RCMP received a report of an assault on an employee at a business on Hapnot Street in Flin Flon, Manitoba. When the officers arrived they found a female employee who had been sprayed in the face with a fire extinguisher by a male who was stealing a bottle of liquor.

As the officers were speaking with the victim, a new report came in from a nearby business on Main Street. A female employee at that location was also sprayed in the face with a fire extinguisher by a male who proceeded to steal cigarettes.
