(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Another violent late shift for local Mac’s employees, this time at the Simpson Street location around 9:15 pm this evening.
Reports are coming in about a white male that was harassing customers outside the location for money. Upon failing to obtain much if any cash, he entered the store.
The male then brandished a knife and physically bumped a customer out from in front of the counter. He then proceeded to demand cash from the 2 employees behind the counter.
The culprit was then told by the clerk that there was no money, and was refused any cash. This made the suspect seemingly irritated as he said “What? Are you serious? Come on man!” and demanded the cash once again. Again, the clerk said there was none and denied his request for cash.
“GIMME THE MONEY” the culprit demanded a third time while leaning in a bit with his knife. “Not today” is basically what the Mac’s employee could have said, as he wasn’t having none of that, and denied the man once again.
It was at this point that the second Mac’s employee started to walk over from around the counter and the culprit became spooked and fled the store.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male wearing a green sweater and green bandana with blue jeans.
Thunder Bay Police Service responded quickly to the scene and obtained a description of the male. Police started to patrol the area looking for a suspect that matches the suspect.
A resident in the Rowan and Mackenzie area reports to us that they saw someone matching the failed robbers description getting arrested shortly after this incident.
We will know more tomorrow, stay tuned.
