A man has been arrested for several robberies in early September, including one where he allegedly held a knife to a child's neck before stealing cash.

The robbery spree started Sept. 3 at about 10:15 p.m. said Winnipeg police, when a man, 50, met another man about an iPhone for sale. The pair met outside a business on McGee street and the buyer brought his 9-year-old child along. The seller whipped out a knife, grabbed the kid and held the knife to the child's neck, said police. He received $100 cash and ran away. The child wasn't hurt.

The next day at about 8 p.m., the suspect met another man outside the same business, again about an iPhone for sale. The victim was given a phone that wasn't an iPhone, and the seller again pulled a knife and demanded cash, said police. He was given $400 before running away.

Check the buyer/seller's name through an online search engine.

Do not give our personal or banking information.

Do not meet someone alone.

Do not transfer/provide money to the person before receiving the product.

Meet during daylight hours, in a public space.

Take only enough cash with you to pay for the item being purchased

Trust your instincts - if something feels wrong, it probably is.
