Paramedics, Police, Hospital Staff Spit On, Assaulted


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – On December 1st, 2019 at around 12:15 am hard working paramedics with the Thunder Bay detachment of Superior North Emergency Medical Services responded to a call for service at the intersection of Windsor and Junot regarding a youth barfing and rolling around on the ground.

Upon the arrival of paramedics, they located a 15-year-old female with roots to Marten Falls First Nation that was indeed barfing and reeking of alcohol beverages. Paramedics were not only spit on by the youth, but also kicked and had fists swung at them. At that point paramedics had locked themselves inside their ambulance and had police respond to the scene to help assist with the incident.


Police arrived on the scene around 12:30 am and observed the intoxicated teenager headbutting the passenger window of the ambulance. Officers approached the female and two officers ended up getting spit on in the face and kicked by the drunken female. At that point, officers managed to restrain the female and had a spit hood placed over her head as she continued to spit on police and act assaultively. The teenager was extremely intoxicated, unsteady on her feet, smelt of alcohol, slurring her feet and otherwise showing signs of being drunk.

The teenager was arrested and taken down to the TBPS station on Balmoral to be processed for being intoxicated in a public place. However, once they got there, the female started falling to the floor, hyperventilating and throwing up even more. Officers ended up escorting the drunken teenager to the hospital and on the way the teenager was still acting aggressively and belligerently. She continued to vomit all over.

Upon arrival at the hospital, the teenager spit once again at paramedics, police and even a security guard. The female continued to become more and more violent and aggressive once in the hospital as moments passed. Medical professionals at the hospital made repeated attempts to calm down the youth but were unsuccessful as the youth relentlessly threatened to injure staff, police, and damage equipment.


Ultimately, she was placed in hospital restraints and placed in a room where she could not harm anyone or destroy any equipment.

The youth appeared in a Thunder Bay courtroom this morning via video link while in police custody at the TBPS station located at 1200 Balmoral Street. Justice of the Peace Bruce Leaman was presiding along with Crown Attorney P. Pasloski and duty counsel worker Joi Wokefield.

Four counts of assault have been laid against the youth, two of which are “assault police”.

After much discussions in court, the youth is granted release from police custody under a $250 recognizance bail plan with her mother as surety and of course, non-deposit. Her conditions are:

  • Reside at her home on Machar Ave.
  • Obey the rules of her mothers household.
  • Curfew of 10:00 pm to 7:00 am.
  • Not to possess or consume alcohol

The youth is granted release and is scheduled to return to court in Thunder Bay on December 12th.

  1. 10-90-100.

    This does not surprise me one bit. Not unusual conduct for far too many FN youths from northern reserves.

    As per normal procedure, she’ll get a lecture and warnings from the lilly livered judge then sent back out to the streets to carry on drinking, drugging and breaking the law.

    What I don’t understand is, who is responsible for this youth? Does she have parents or guardians in Dumpster Bay who are taking care of her? What’s being done to hold those people accountable for the disgusting behaviour of this youth? What’s she doing out at that hour drunk/drugged out of her mind at that age? This kid is on a slippery slope to hell. .

    If she’s not given the discipline and guidance she desperately needs, might as well sign her up for the next twenty years of welfare scamming, pumping out illegitimate kids and criminal activity until she pegs out at 35 years of age.

  2. This BS by these scumbag punks has to stop. It is time when an EMS or police responding to trash like this, when that POS gets aggressive it gets a healthy dose of reciprocal aggression . The punks should be thrown to the ground and handcuffed and the spit bag placed on them immediately. No second chances. This shit hole country has deteriorated so badly that the only way it will cure itself is to have detention camps like they have in China where you are “taught” their methods to learn respect. Then there would not be the disrepect and aggression performances like this which are currently taking place all over this country. The only reason this type of shit continues is because right now there is not one single fuc*&g politician who has the integrity or courage to stand up and say enough is enough and those punks know it.

  3. Prime example of another high class citizen from out of town. Occupying our emergency services when there are people in this area that actually need their services (elderly, people with actual medical distress).
    I know if I pulled a stunt like this, at any age, I wouldn’t be scared of the cops, my parents would actually kick my ass worse than any cop beat down.
    I am sure glad that we have great and patient emergency service personnel in this city. If I was in their shoes last night there would have been a different headline for this story.

  4. She is 15? Where the hell are the parents? It is so upsetting to read how disrespectful a 15 year old could be to people that are trying to help her. Clearly the parents have completely failed in doing their job on how to raise a child, but again not suprised. Next time a person is out of control like this they should just leave. Drive away and let nature take its course. What an utter waste!

    1. Her actions speak volumes on how she was raised. The hatred for mainstream society runs deep on the reserves. Rest assured she was taught to hate “colonialists” and everything they stand for.

      This type of behaviour is a common thread among the welfare scamming, drunk/drugged people who litter the streets of Dumpster Bay. If you don’t have smokes, booze, drugs or money to give them their actions are often aggressive if not violent.

  5. This f**king spitting on people has got to stop. Whatever it takes, the courts must do it. The police can’t, they get charged and we hear the racism cry if they give them a swat for spitting on them. They should get their damn teeth knocked out. Just shows what kind of upbringing they had. But let’s not go blaming it on the Residential schools or the 60s scoop ..

  6. Dirty little bitch she ever spit on me I would cold clock her youth or not. Teach her a lesson her parents should have.
