THUNDER BAY – Crimebeat -Updated- It has been another fairly busy weekend for the Thunder Bay Police Service. An assault at the Victoria Inn responded to on Saturday has a 53 year-old male in critical condition in hospital.
Ronnie Beaver, the brother of the man assaulted at the Victoria Inn states, “Last night when I was there when I saw my brother struggling for life. I know my brother would never physically hurt another human being. I really felt sorry for the person responsible. He didn’t just break the 7 spiritual natural laws of; Love – Respect – Honesty – Truth – Humility – Wisdom – Courage, he broke the natural laws against himself and his family now he will suffer and pay for it rest of his life. This is just the way it is believe me”.
As well, a stabbing which happened on the 100 block of May Street South has a 48-year old woman in custody charged with assault with a weapon.
On Friday night, a particularly sad situation happened. At the Knights of Columbus Hall on May Street, someone was able to steal wallets and purses from Special Olympic athletes attending a dinner. TPBS report the suspect is a male between twenty to thirty years of age and was wearing a grey hooded sweatshirt.
There were also numerous liquor offenses across the city, as well as thirty one vehicle stops or motor vehicle collisions. It appears that many Thunder Bay drivers are still getting used to winter driving conditions.
If you have information on these, or any other incidents, you can contact the Thunder Bay Police Service at 684-1200 or Crime Stoppers at 623-8477.
