A Winnipeg woman is in custody after an early morning carjacking at CF Polo Park, which saw a mall security guard attacked while he was patrolling the area Tuesday.

Winnipeg police said they were called by the guard just after 12:30 a.m., who told them the suspect had jumped on the hood of his car while he was making his rounds, and then climbed in the passenger side. In the scuffle that followed, the guard was shoved to the ground while the suspect drove off with the vehicle, hitting the guard in the arm with the car in the process.
