Thunder Bay area schools under special police protection
Thunder Bay Police in a media statement say “There have been recent inquiries by local news media regarding hold and secure procedures at two local elementary schools this week. Lakehead District School Board had made the decision to implement these procedures as a precautionary measure. The schools had a safety concern relating to an alleged domestic violence incident involving parents of students who attended the schools”.
“Police are trying to locate a male suspect in connection with the domestic incident. This individual will be facing charges related to a domestic incident which took place off school property”.
Police add, “Social media postings have been made regarding the wanted male. Given the responsibility to protect the privacy of both the victim and children involved, investigators have not released the identity of the wanted male. The man’s ex wife was not injured in the original incident which took place on February 1, 2013”.
The social media postings are allegedly from the man’s former spouse, who states “My ex ——- ——— is wanted by police for anyone who has seen him or spoke to him you need to call Thunder Bay Police or the Ontario provincial police. He still has two schools on lock and secure and 50-60 officers are putting in 20 hours of their time to find him”.
