(THUNDER BAY, ON) – To almost no one’s surprise, child tax day has resulted in some ruckus on Picton Ave after the sun went down.
A resident in the area who is deeply concerned for the area tells us that there was a group of people shouting and hollering down the street but that the main confrontation was between two women.
Noises consistent with fighting could be heard echoing through the neighbourhood along with screaming and threats of further violence. The group appeared to be headed towards Red River Road and once at Walkover, first responders hit the scene.
Initially, members with the Thunder Bay Police Service, Thunder Bay Fire & Rescue and Superior North EMS all responded to the scene and were on Picton Ave, away from the group. The black car is a Pizza Hut delivery vehicle that was delivering some child tax goodness.
Soon after, first responders made their way up Picton, closer to Walkover, where the group was. Assaultive behaviour was happening before they arrived. Firefighters cleared the scene but not before using a spotlight to assist in a brief search for the group of child tax day hooligans.
Once police made contact with the group and spoke to a number of them, they soon turned their attention to a home in the 80’s block of Picton Ave. A number of additional police cruisers attended the scene at this point.
This is where the story turns cold, we are uncertain if any arrests were made and what happened next. We are inquiring and hoping information hits our news desk.
