(THUNDER BAY, ON) – It’s no secret that being a security officer in Thunder Bay has now become a difficult minefield to navigate. These men and women have to deal with being physically attacked, spit on, slapped, yelled at and worse. Should they choose to defend themselves, they run the risk of losing their jobs, license, and being labelled all sorts of terms.
Today was no different in the south downtown core. It appears that a woman was not allowed into VictoriaVille Mall and became aggressive to the point of whipping out what seems to be her butt cheeks and likely her vagina.
The security staff remained composed and did not retaliate, despite being yelled at and at several times assaulted. One staff retreated into the building, likely to request police backup.
One of the security staff remained at the entrance to the mall, blocking access to the woman who appeared to be quite upset that she was not allowed entry.
The area is known for random violence, drug deals in broad daylight, intoxicated lurkers and a general “uneasy” vibe when citizens have a reason to head to the south downtown core.
Multiple businesses have closed down over the past while, including two banks which have been there for decades.
