(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Yet another incident in the city in which an authority figure is abused on the job. This time the events unfolded at the notorious Victoriaville Mall.
It’s unknown why the woman was being detained initially, but what we pieced together is that the woman had spit on the security guard before the video occurred, and then it appears she kicked the security guard in the ding dong during the shuffle.
Around this time the security guard can be heard wondering out loud where the other security guards are and that “this is bulls**t”.
An indigenous male who was on scene was smart and whipped out his smartphone camera to begin documenting the incident. He later sent it in to TRCCTB.COM. Excellent.
Shortly after the male started to record the interaction this woman was having with the security guard, a male started to obstruct his view and requested he stopped recording. Some back and forth banter began between the two.
Once the Thunder Bay Police Service arrived shortly after this video was made, the woman was handcuffed and placed into the back of a police cruiser. Police are continuing their investigation.
Below is the videos sent in by a REAL Concerned Citizen “Sugarhead”, his statement as well.
”I was having coffee, until I heard screams, yelling and I checked what was going on. That’s when I approached the scene. Woman in distressed. I don’t think she was stealing or anything like that. I don’t know exactly what started the commotion but She might have did something to the security guard . And security pretty much hold her against her well and not let her go. That’s when it escalated. The security guard did more damage physically and more than 3 people approached the security to stop being rough. I was one of them. Cops came by and the woman was cool when they showed up.” – Sugarhead
