(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Thunder Bay Police Service officers responded to a call at about 8:40 p.m. on Sunday Aug. 26, 2018 in the area of Cumberland and Pearl Streets to check on the welfare of a half-dressed male wandering into traffic.
As officers arrived they found a male who appeared to be intoxicated and covered it what was believed to be cooking oil.
When officers approached the male fled to a Pearl Street residence and entered. The male and the occupants of the residence were unknown to each other, and the male refused to leave the dwelling.
Police arrived a short time later and the male became more aggressive and attempted to strike an officer.
The male was eventually arrested and charged with Assaulting a Peace Officer, Resist Peace Officer, Forcible Entry and Probation Order: Non-Compliance.
He was released with a future court date.
