(THUNDER BAY, ON) – We are getting reports of a brutal beatdown that happened near Lappe earlier this week.
Information we have received is that a male was attacked while in his garage by at least 2 men with golf clubs and/or cans of paint. They beat the victim so bad he may lose one eyeball and is fighting for his life in the ICU.
After the beating, the victims truck was taken by the culprits.
After the golf club/paint can beat down, the culprits forced the victim to drink paint and poured more paint all over his head.
The Ontario Provincial Police put out a media release regarding the incident, but only mentioned that a serious assault had happened.
We are expecting a charge of aggravated assault or attempted murder to be pressed as soon as police close in on the suspect.
Police are still investigating and TRCCTB.COM has information that leads us to believe this was perpetrated by local citizens, and is not gang-related.
Our thoughts are with the victim and their family, hoping for a speedy recovery.
TRCCTB.COM has been receiving numerous threats from local drug dealers who want this story hidden from the public. We refuse to be intimidated.
We will continue to update you further as more information becomes available.
