(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Residents that live near the 300 block of Syndicate Avenue North report that shortly before 3:00 am numerous people fled the scene of a home. This unfolded shortly before first responders swarmed the residence.
The home is known to have heavy foot-traffic which is apparently from young adults gathering and playing video games and music together.
Police followed footprints that were left in the snow after numerous people fled the scene and located two males. Both were arrested, a 14-year-old and a 19-year-old. The youth cannot be named in accordance with the Youth Criminal Justice Act.
19–year-old Cody Echum was charged with Aggravated Assault which endangered the life of a male by beating him with a baseball bat.
Echum was not released today and was ordered to remain in custody. He is scheduled to appear in court soon for another swing at bail.
The youth was charged with the same charge. Both were held in jail pending future court appearances.
