(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Thunder Bay Police Service has a significant presence on Gore Street, between Yonge and Heath early this evening.
The section of Gore between Yonge and Heath has been closed off, and the Thunder Bay Police Service forensics van is on the scene.
A REAL Concerned Citizen on location had told TRCCTB that they heard a woman was assaulted on Gore by some men with a large knife, possibly a MACHETE. Furthermore, we have heard that the incident revolved around drugs.
Our source tells us that the woman was missing at least one finger, and the other ones were hanging on by “shreds” on her left hand, she was rushed to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries and is presumed to be all right now.
Thunder Bay Police Service officers were seen taking pictures of the ground, possibly blood stains.

Correction: An earlier version of this story cited a civilian who said that a collision occured between a vehicle and pedestrian.

No collision had occured, only a violent aggravated assult.
