(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Sources have indicated that a serious incident unfolded in the city. Tips have informed us that two males, 18-year-old Logan Corbett (pictured right) and 26-year-old Skyler Linklater (pictured left) were alleged to be involved in a violent bear spray assault that unfolded in Thunder Bay.
Details are thin at this point, but what we have pieced together through sources outside the courtroom is that Skyler became aggressive towards a male that was in a vehicle. A window was smashed on the victim’s vehicle allegedly by Corbett. Linklater and Corbett then allegedly taunted the male in the vehicle to come out and fight. It is further alleged that Linklater blasted the victim with bear spray. After that, Corbett allegedly tossed Linklater a knife in which he is said to have continued in the alleged criminal behaviour.
The victim, who had his girlfriend with him, then fled the scene with eyes swollen from the bear spray. He later crashed into a pole as he could not see where he was driving.
”This is f***ing bullshit first off it wasn’t bear spray and another thing the guy in the car followed them for a few blocks got out and attack them fail and then call the cops…. the guy in the car has been harassing Skyler for months…” Brittany Warren alleges.
Linklater and Corbett appeared in a Thunder Bay courtroom this morning via internet video link from the Thunder Bay Police Service Station (A.K.A, “Hotel Balmoral”). Her Worship, Zelda Kitchekeesic was presiding along with Crown Attorney Afton Brown and a duty counsel representative.
Both suspects are facing a charge of assault with a weapon stemming from the bear spray being discharged. Corbett is facing the following additional charges:
- Concealed weapon (knife).
- Mischief causing damage under $5000 (vehicle window).
After numerous discussions in court and both men having people show up to act as sureties to ensure their release from jail, both men were released with future court dates.
Corbett was released on a $200 non deposit bail and Linklater was released on a $500 non deposit. They were released under the following conditions:
