UPDATE: South Side Stabbing Arrest Suspects Appear in Court


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Yesterday, there was a gruesome incident that unfolded in the city’s south side downtown core.

A stabbing took place at a May Street residence in which the victim fled to the entrance off Victoriaville Mall at Brodie and Victoria. They then bled out a significant amount of blood. Allegations are that the victim was forcibly confined.


24-year-old Nicholas Richard Couture and Levi Lawson (pictured) have both been charged after the incident. Officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service (TBPS) responded to the incident, arrested, charged, and held both of the suspects in custody pending a court appearance.

This morning, in a Thunder Bay Courthouse courtroom, both suspects appeared by video from the TBPS Balmoral Street station. Justice of the Peace Zelda Kitchekeesic was presiding along with a Crown Attorney that I’m not aware of her name and a duty counsel representative.

Couture is facing a charge of assault and forcible confinement. Lawson was charged with aggravated assault and forcible confinement. These charges indicate that Lawson is the one who dealt the serious injury.


Couture was not granted bail today but has been scheduled to appear back in court on Monday for a bail hearing. Lawson too, was held in jail and will appear back in court on Monday.

  1. Hey Levi, you ever hear of a haircut? You dirty POS. Actually nevermind, keep the hair, it lets everyone know how big of a douchebag you are. I hope he gets the same treatment but worse in the big house, maybe just maybe it’ll be one less peice of trash in tbay

  2. 10-90-100.

    Lowlife scum bag creeps on their way to the pen.

    Too bad society puts so much wasted effort trying to rehabilitate these senselessly violent punks. There’s not a chance in hell that these two wannabe gangsta losers will ever amount to anything more that welfare scamming criminals and lifelong parasites. They’re nothing more than a disease to our weakening society. We’d all be better off if they were simply eliminated.

    1. Unreal I agree the justice laws need to change who would walk down simpson or may st Or in that area at night in 2019 WOW

    2. they should just close up and tear down that mall ,the whole area is a drug center and needs to be cleaned up soon. hope these loosers get alot of time in jail. i agree the system is not right , they let these pos goofs out in 24 hours ..wake up thunder bay.. this city is getting worse not better…

  3. I pity the people working the Bargain Shop, or other stores in Vickyvalle.
    Levi & company should be sent to Stephen King’s : “Institute”.
    Where they get tasered , dunked in water and have multiple “experiments” done on them.

  4. Levi Lawson you are some pc of shit. Who gives you the right to do that horrific stabbing? I bet if that happened to you, you probably would be crying for your mommy!!
