(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Around midnight, as the eastern standard time zone changed from 2019 to 2020, a male became the victim in this year’s, and decade’s first stabbing in the great city of Thunder Bay.
What we have pieced together is that the victim and the assailant were inside the notorious northside bar “Dragons Den”. This bar is in the same building as the Landmark Hotel and LCBO located at 1010 Dawson Road.
The two were engaged in some mouthing-off and general cockiness inside the bar throughout the evening.
Sources indicate that the stabbing victim went outside to enjoy some fresh air and suck back a cigarette, possibly two cigarettes. It is at this point that the assailant started a fistfight with the victim, in which the victim beat his ass.
The assailant was then being instigated to attack the stabbing victim by what appeared to be friends of the assailant. The assailant then approached the stabbing victim, swinging the knife at him numerous times.
The knife punctured the victim 4 times, twice in the chest, once in the armpit and once in the ear. One of the knife wounds on the chest punctured his lungs and came within 1 centimetre of striking the mans heart.
The victim was rushed to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre where he remains in serious but stable condition. It is unknown if the assailant was arrested yet.
