THUNDER BAY – Crimebeat – Thunder Bay Police were faced with several crime issues overnight. First, the Mac’s store at 600 Arthur Street West was the scene of an early morning robbery. A female armed with a small knife made off with a small amount of cash and cigarettes. There were no injuries. The incident took place just after 12:00AM on Friday.
Police offer this description of the suspect:
– Native Canadian female 30’s to 40’s
– Approximately 5’3” tall – Heavy build
– Wearing a dark hoodie, dark pants, glasses, white shirt, baseball cap and red gloves
– The female appeared to have a dark neck tube pulled up onto her face
The female was last seen headed westbound on Arthur Street. Anyone with information should contact police or Crime Stoppers.
Police also report, they are continuing to investigate an auto-pedestrian collision that occurred last evening at approximately 6:45PM near the intersection of Eleventh Ave and Field St. The collision resulted in serious but non-life-threatening injuries that sent a 56 year old male pedestrian to hospital by ambulance. Officers have determined that the male was walking across the road and was struck by a passing silver Chevrolet pick-up truck. The driver stopped, and rendered all assistance possible as required until police and ambulance arrived.
The shift from daylight savings time to standard time means it is darker earlier, and perhaps extra caution is needed by both motorists and pedestrians.
Finally, police report they are investigating a motor vehicle collision which occurred at Newton Street and Darwin Crescent. A black truck operated by a 23 year old male sped off from a RIDE checkpoint and struck a house. The truck then struck 2 parked vehicles. Damage was extensive. The driver has been charged with numerous offences. Alcohol was a factor in the collisions.
