(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The cities south side has experienced another terrifying experience involving a child and an adult woman attempting to grab the boy.
The family says that their boy was walking home from school when a woman about 35 to 40 years old tried to grab him during his walk home from school.
The woman was not successful, and the boy ran home. When the boy started to run, she began to chase him literally all the way home. Lucky for the boy that he was able to stay ahead of her during the unimaginable situation.
The woman appeared to be intoxicated, once reviewed on the families video surveillance system. They also have a good image of her and an accompanying video.
The police have been notified. This happened in the East End.
Below is a video of the child running into his yard and up the stairs to the door, visibly in a panic.
Below is a video of the suspect walking by a moment later, seemingly excessively grooming her hair.
The father, Dom, said “… the video is simply a description of the women. This happened up the street. My son was walking home they walked by each other and she reached out to grab him. She missed and he started running home she also started running when he looked back she started walking few houses back. I believe my son. As you could see in the first video how scared he looked.”
The family is upset with the school board and wants to know why some children need to walk 5 or 6 blocks to catch their bus.
“It’s just a matter of time before a child gets abducted”
The family is calling on changes to be made regarding children’s bussing pick ups and drop offs.
Also, the family wants to advise everyone to hold their children a little tighter tonight.
Also, another woman reported the following “Please keep your doors locked while driving on Simpson. My husband was just mugged by a drunk woman with a knife that jumped in the truck.”
We are waiting to get the photo of the woman, we will update this article when we can.
