(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A frightening situation unfolded in Thunder Bay just over a week ago, we have the exclusive story for you below.
Sources have told us the following.
A pregnant woman was out with a male camping together, when the male became suddenly angered and refused to allow the woman to leave. The male blocked the door to the trailer, unplugged the internet hotspot, and took her cell phone.
The male is a very tall, and muscular man, while the woman is a smaller woman, and 17 weeks pregnant.
At some point, after many hours of being forcibly confined, the male went out to his truck. The woman locked the trailer and managed to access a laptop that was in the trailer, and pulled a wifi signal from a nearby wifi.
The woman messaged a person over Facebook, requesting help “right away”, but there was no response. The male regained access to the trailer and seen her messaging someone on “facebook asking for help, he instantly became enraged.
He then grabbed the woman and squeezed her in a bear hug type hold, and began shaking her violently. The woman was holding her dog.
She managed to escape his grasp and bolted for the door. She made it to her car by running as quickly as she could. Once arriving at her vehicle, she quickly slammed the door shut and locked it.
When she tried to leave, he had already pulled his truck in to block her from backing up. He quickly backed up and allowed her to leave.
As she was driving out of the property, the male had driven at a high rate of speed and swerved in front of the woman’s car, cutting off her path. The woman tried to stop in time, but it resulted in the vehicles colliding.
The male exited his truck and started yelling in a highly aggressive manner at the woman, shouting about the damage to his truck. “LOOK WHAT YOU DID TO MY F***ING TRUCK”.
The woman’s front end was heavily damaged, and all the airbags went off, meanwhile, the male’s truck only sustained a small dent. The driver’s side door of the woman’s car would not open when she tried to exit the car, then the male managed to open the rear passenger door of her vehicle.
The male grabbed the woman and dragged her out of the car, it is at this point that he began to punch her in the head about 20 times. Blood began to run down her face and in her hair. Her face would later swell up with a huge black eye.
The woman attempted to make a break for it down the road and desperately crying “I’m not getting in your truck” repeatedly. The male responded with “it’s the f***ing middle of the night, there are f*****g bears out here, nobody is going to come and get you, what the f**k are you going to do?”.
At this point, he had forced her back into the truck and brought her back to the trailer, where she was yet again locked in by him.
The male removed the laptop and threatened to smash it. He then started complaining that she had messaged someone for help, and he asked of her “Do you think I want to go to f*****g jail? Do you think I want to spend thousands of f*****g dollars in lawyers bills?”
She cried in terror “NO NO NO NO I just wanted someone to help me!”
At this point the male responded with “get in the f****n truck, I’ll take you to your f*****g grandma’s house”
Once the woman got in the truck, and they were travelling down the highway, the male said “You think I’m taking you to your f*****g grandma’s house? I’m taking you out into the f*****g bush. You messaged a f*****g cop! You think I want to go to F*****G JAIL?!?!? I’M GOING TO F*****G KILL YOU”
The male began punching the woman in the face repeatedly, over and over at least 7 times before she managed to move from the front seat into the back. The male continued to punch her from the front seat to the back, while he was driving down the highway, swerving all over the road.
The woman ducked down on the floor, and the male started to throw elbows into her head and back, as she was curled up, attempting to keep her unborn baby safe.
After numerous blows to the head and back, the woman managed to sit up in her seat and rolled the window down. She could not open the door as the child locks were engaged.
She saw some people on the side of the road and she screamed out to them for help.
At this point, the male panicked after noticing these people on the side of the road seeing what happened. The male promptly brought the woman to her grandmother’s house.
He went to the door and rang the doorbell, with his hands still covered in blood. He told her grandma he wanted to talk to her about something. The grandmother started yelling for the cops to be called.
The woman was rushed into her grandmother’s house, and the male sped off.
4 Thunder Bay Police Service cruisers and a Superior North EMS responded to the scene, and the woman was sent to the hospital. The baby is said to be in stable condition.
The male was on the run for about a week before police nabbed him. Police later located his truck, and her car hidden at a property owned by the male’s parents, the car was moved from the crash scene.
