(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Reports have hit our newsroom that have informed us about an incident that unfolded in a north side neighbourhood.
What we have heard is that a youth, roughly 14 to 15 years old, was walking on Melvin Avenue when a group of what appeared to be kids aged 14-19 jumped him.
The kid was beaten and robbed of his hoodie and backpack.
An adult from a nearby home came out of their house and shouted, interrupting the onslaught.
At that point, the group of kids scattered and fled the scene.
The group of kids is estimated to be around 10 in size. Police were contacted about the situation. The victim did not sustain any serious injuries. We were not able to confirm if police have made any arrests regarding this incident.
