THUNDER BAY – Crimebeat – Thunder Bay Police responded to 192 calls for service over the past twenty-four hours. Those calls are down in number from the average Saturday night in the city. There were fewer alcohol related calls – perhaps the cool weather slowed down a few people.
There were only 11 alcohol related calls.

Over the weekend there were a number of sexual assault incidents, one in Chapples Park and another indecent act that happened at Arthur Street near Waterloo.
