(THUNDER BAY, ON) – On Thursday night, a woman was in Thunder Bay and was waiting for a cab that she had ordered. Due to undisclosed reasons, she has had both of her legs amputated previously and has two prosthetic legs.
As she was waiting for her cab, two men approached her and asked her if she had an extra smoke. The woman, not being rich but always willing to give and help others, reached down into her purse to get the men a smoke. That’s when things turned violent.
The woman was pushed to the ground by one man while the other man grabbed her purse. The men made off with an undisclosed amount of loot.
A sore back with some level of bruising is what the woman was left with after attempting to help out the two men with a smoke. She says she is more hurt mentally than anything. She is glad that she did not get hurt more than she did as this situation could have become so much worse for her.
She would like to tell the public to remain vigilant and aware of your surroundings. She says that even if she wasn’t a double leg amputee, she wouldn’t have been able to stop this violent robbery.
Police are aware of the incident and are investigating.
