(THUNDER BAY, ON) – Hardworking officers with the Thunder Bay Police Service have arrested and charged 35-year-old Wayne Dennis Yellowhead regarding a string of assaults on the same woman. Some of the charges can be considered historical.
The most recent assault is dated on November 22nd, 2019. The next most recent assault happened earlier in 2019. Two other assaults happened between 2003 and 2005. All assaults are considered allegations at this point as the matters work their way through court.
Yellowhead appeared in court this morning via video link from the Thunder Bay Police Service station located at 12oo Balmoral Street. Justice of the Peace Anna Gibbons was presiding along with Crown Attorney Tamara Fairchild and duty counsel representative Joy Wakefield.
Yellowhead is facing 4 charges, all of assault on a woman. It is not certain where the assault took place, but there are indications that Yellowhead may be in town temporarily and staying in a hotel.
His lawyer of choice is John DeBakker. He is denied bail today and is scheduled to appear in court on Monday for a bail hearing which will be run by duty counsel after some courtrooms discussions unfolded today.
He is being shipped off to the overcrowded and understaffed Thunder Bay District Jail where he will likely remain until at least his Monday court date.
