When officers arrived they located the male and instructed him to drop the knife. The male complied and police were able to speak with him and assess his injuries.

Police learned the male had been the victim of a recent assault.

The investigation revealed the male had returned home from work at about 3:30 a.m. when he became involved in a verbal altercation with a friend who was temporarily residing at his home.

The victim was transported to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre via ambulance for further assessment of his injuries.

Police identified an accused, who was not at the scene when officers first arrived. Police located the accused, with assistance from the TBPS’s Break and Enter And Robbery (BEAR) Unit, just before 11:30 a.m. that day.
