(THUNDER BAY, ON) – We have now confirmed what caused a late night heavy police presence on Arthur Street, as we did uncover some information.
Police had closed off a portion of Arthur Street closed near the Airlane Hotel’s entrance to the intersection of Mountdale and Arthur.
Only one westbound lane remained open to traffic.
Numerous police cars were seen at the Moose and Goose, along with yellow tape closing off an area there.
A group of three Indigenous males brutally assaulted a lone Caucasian male on the sidewalk in front of Moose and Goose. There was a brief verbal altercation just before the merciless beating began. Witnesses to the beat down say that they were relentlessly kicking and stomping on his face, head, and body. The male lost consciousness and was still unresponsive when an ambulance took him to the emergency department.
The male eventually regained consciousness but has at least a broken jaw.
Police are continuing their investigation.
Anyone with photos of the incident or more information is urged to email us firstname.lastname@example.org
This is a developing story and we will have more information out as soon as possible.
