Thunder Bay
Date Published: 2017-09-28

A Thunder Bay Police Officer received minor injuries while attempting to arrest a 15 year old male last evening shortly after 8:00 p.m.

The officer's vehicle was approached by a citizen outside of No Frills on Dawson Road and advise that two males where fighting outside Walmart. The officer intervened to stop the altercation between a 15 year old and a 54 year old. The 15 year old male was uncooperative with the officer and lifted his fist in a gesture to punch the officer. The suspect was notified that he was under arrest and he attempted to resist the officer. A male bystander came to assist until other uniform patrol officers arrived.

The 15 year old continued to be belligerent and uncooperative while being handcuffed. A follow up interview with the 54 year old male indicated that water had been throw on him in the washroom and he confronted this male outside which started the altercation.

The youth was escorted to the police station where he was charged with Assault Police, Resist Arrest and Assault with a Weapon. He appeared in court this morning and was released to a future court date.
