Hectic Week Continues for Thunder Bay Police – Arrest made for Pearl Street Assault


THUNDER BAY – Thunder Bay Police Service officers were dispatched to a residential address in the 200 block of Pearl Street just after 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3, 2020 following reports of a disturbance.

When officers arrived they located an injured female who appeared to have been the victim of an assault. An officer attended to the victim’s injury until paramedics with the Superior North EMS could arrive and offer further medical assistance.

The victim was later transported to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre for further treatment of her serious injuries. The injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

Through their ongoing investigation police learned an argument had taken place between the victim and an accused female inside an apartment unit in the building.

The accused was then transported to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre for medical assessment of her own injuries sustained prior to the arrest.
