THUNDER BAY – An arrest has been made in the attack on a woman that reportedly involved throwing a trailer hitch at her on Mackenzie and Cameron Street. Police say that the eighteen-year-old turned himself in after Thunder Bay Police Service detectives spoke to him on Saturday. He has been remanded in custody.
Brayden Bushby of Thunder Bay has been charged with aggravated assault.
Sources told NNL that “Four people who were in the vehicle on Mackenzie and Cameron street who apparently are responsible for the vicious assault on a woman, throwing and hitting her with a trailer hitch have reportedly turned themselves into police”. It has not been confirmed if there were other arrests.
The sister of the woman put out on social media that a video which included images of the vehicle was going to be aired. This apparently led to the individuals turning themselves into police.
A rally was held at Paterson Park in downtown Fort William last night that was attended by a fairly large crowd. Increasingly in the city, people are working to stand up against the kinds of street violence like this that is far too often not reported.
