  • Careless use of a firearm.
  • Forcible confinement.
  • Using a firearm in the commission of an offence.

He appeared in a Thunder Bay Courthouse courtroom this morning via video link while in police custody at the Thunder Bay Police Service station. His Worship, Justice of the Peace Bruce Leaman was presiding along with Crown Attorney Rob Kozak and criminal defence lawyer David Bruzzese.

  1. What’s with the jihad outfit?
    From his actions, it appears this guy want to carry on his old country ways over here.
    Women aren’t property and deserve the same respect as men. In addition underage girls are off limits unless you want to end up in jail and be registered as a pedophile/sexual predator.
    This is Canada. Not some third world sh!t hole where women are treated worse than dogs.

    1. He is not from the Middle East, he was born and raised in Thunder Bay. But judging by your intelligence and immediate assumption that he is I expect a hateful uninformed response to this Reply.

  2. Thank goodness the young girl was not harmed. I cannot image how traumatic this may have been for her. I’m not sure if the parents contacted the police regarding this lowlifes behaviour but I know as a parent I would have. This guy appears to be an immigrant and he is currently on probation for some kind of prior event. We need to start shipping these guys back if they break our laws. This could have ended up with a dead kid and heartbroken parents. When do we say enough is enough,

  3. He’s not an Arabic immigrant. He’s just wearing a costume in the second photo. He owns the KingWest Barber shop down on Court St North. Guy’s a freak.

  4. I went to high school with this creep. I think Thunder Bay should set up the show To Catch a Predator and put away people like this for good.
