THUNDER BAY – The Thunder Bay Police Service has been made aware of recent “Bad Date” incidents involving sex trade workers. Police are concerned as individuals involved in this industry are often vulnerable and at risk. It is common for victims of a “Bad Date” to be reluctant to report these types of incidents to police. All crimes reported to police will be investigated.
The TBPS is encouraging other possible victims to come forward and report to the police or the Sexual Abuse Centre Thunder Bay. This organization offers free support to victims of sexual violence and can be reached at 807-345-0894.
Anyone or any community stake holder with information that could be related is encouraged to contact the Criminal Investigation Branch of the Thunder Bay Police at 684-1200 or Crime Stoppers 1-800-222-8477 or www.tipsubmit.com.
