Big Brawl At The Sovereign Room – Police Seek Black Male with “Silver Grill”


(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The Thunder Bay Police Service is looking for a suspect involved in an assault and public disturbance at a north-side bar early Monday morning.

Officers were dispatched to a disturbance at The Sovereign Room bar on 220 Red River Road just before 2:30 a.m. following reports of a large fight inside the establishment. A group of males were said to be outside the bar threatening staff and patrons immediately following the altercation, but they were not present when police arrived on scene.


Through the course of their investigation officers learned a male, who was part of a larger group at the bar, began a physical confrontation with other patrons and assaulted a woman.

A staff member of the bar intervened, at which point a number of males from the accused man’s group became involved. The staff member was then assaulted by the male who had initially assaulted the female patron.

Police describe the accused as a black male with a thin build. He had high cheekbones, a silver grill on his front teeth, and wore large shiny diamond rings on his hands. He also had thin cornrows. Police do not have an image of the accused to share with the public at this time.


The accused is violent and police urge members of the public not to approach or confront him.

The woman assaulted did not require medical attention. The male employee required medical attention for non-life threatening injuries.

If you have an information that could assist investigators in identifying this suspect call police at 684-1200 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, online at

  1. Let me guess?????

    Lowlife punk “gangsta” from down east. Should be year round open season on these greasy creeps.

    Canada needs to bring more of these criminals into the country………NOT!

    1. You assume this was an immigrant. You are not sure where this person came from. You have no clue if they are 3rd gen Canadian or more. There have been people of colour that have lived in Canada longer than most of our families but again you assumed. That is ignorance.

  2. Sounds like the little boys need to be straightened out. Guaranteed they’re not from Thunder Bay!

  3. Funny cuz no one takes these jube Jubes seriously down south. They are not perceived as anything other then criminal low life losers drug dealers. No one is scared of them in the big city’s .. time for Thunder Bay to start showing these jube jubes some northern hospifatality.

    1. Porch monkeys? I’ve only heard that as a racist remark. Doesn’t have anything to do with these pieces of crap.

  4. What this man did was wrong but racism is equally wrong. Breeds more hatred to the ignorance which is already in abundance in this town.

  5. Society is lost. The man assaulted a woman and the staff defending her and you’re pearl-clutching about racism.
