(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Appearing in courtroom 104 of the Thunder Bay Courthouse for W.A.S.H. (weekend and statutory holiday) court from the Thunder Bay Police Service Station is a youth S.C.
His Worship, Justice of the Peace Marcel Donio is presiding, along with Crown Attorney Derek Silvestro and duty counsel lawyer Lianne Roberge.
On September 1st, 2018 around midnight, several youths were all hanging out at a Limbrick resident, and the complainant was across the street.
Excessive noise was coming from the address where the youth was hanging out, and the complainant had asked them to keep it down. The complainant had engaged in a consentual fight with one of the people at the address.
One person restrained the complainant on the ground while a separate person was punching and kicking the complainant in the face.
S.C., who was in the living room at this time, came out and had a can that said “pepper spray” on it, and sprayed the complainant in the face.
The complainant went back to their home at this time, and upon police arrival, the complainant was washing their face and had redness around the eyes.
Furthermore, the Crown indicates that the youth has an outstanding charge of assault with a weapon for a similar matter where bear spray was used.
The Crown states that as a youth, the onus remains on the crown and that he is willing to release on the following conditions:
- Curfew of 9pm to 7am
- No contact with the numerous people involved
- Keep the peace and be of good behaviour in case of incidental contact, since they live so close to each other
- Not attend 2 addresses
- No weapon
- No alcohol
- $200 no deposit
The youth is ordered released, pending a future court date.
