THUNDER BAY – An assault reported on May Street on Monday evening has led to charges laid by Thunder Bay Police against a woman.

Police arrested a Thunder Bay woman for assault and mischief following an altercation with a security guard Monday evening.

Officers with the Uniform Patrol Branch were dispatched to the Circle K convenience store at 346 May Street just before 7:30 pm EDT on Monday, July 13, 2020, following reports of an assault that had just occurred.

When officers arrived they located a male victim. The female accused was not at the scene but located in the area.

The police investigation found that the accused had entered the store earlier asking to use the washroom. Staff was unable to give the woman access to their facilities, at which point the woman became irate.

When asked to leave, the accused refused. As a security guard made an attempt to call for police the accused slapped the mobile phone from his hand, damaging it. The accused then assaulted the male before leaving the scene on foot.

The accused was located near the scene and arrested without further incident.

A 35-year-old Thunder Bay woman has been charged with Assault, Mischief Under $5,000, and Breach of Probation x 3.

The accused is expected to appear in bail court Tuesday morning.
