(THUNDER BAY, ON) – A shopper that was lurking around the south-side Walmart located on Arthur Street had an interesting story to tell us.
The shopper tells us that they were engaged in some shopping-related activities inside Walmart when they were approached by a male who was about 5-foot 10-inches tall. The person was carrying workout weights and appeared to be trying to workout as they were lurking around the store.
Upon being approached, the working-out weirdo asked the shopper to give them some cash. A strong odour of alcohol was emanating from the persons mouth.
The shopper declined and attempted to carry on with their shopping list but could not resist monitoring the suspect for a bit, to ensure their own safety. The suspect then approached other shoppers, appearing to request money.
Two people then approached the suspect, one of them removed the weights from him as the suspect appeared like he was about to throw it at them. At that point they escorted him out of the store. During the course of the interaction with the two, the suspect could be overheard muttering that he “knows Pino Demasi” a few times. He was ultimately escorted out of the store and staggered off towards the LCBO.
Just to be clear, if anyone attempts to use my name in an effort to get themselves out of trouble or to intimidate, please do not let that happen. Anyone using my name can be sure it will have the opposite impact of what they are expecting, I would hope.
