KNIFE SWINGING ROBBERY AT ASIAN GROCERY STORE ARRESTED

KNIFE SWINGING ROBBERY AT ASIAN GROCERY STORE ARRESTED

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~  May 13, 2022 (LSNews)  Hardworking Thunder Bay Police Officers responded to a knife point robbery at the Golden Flower- Asian/Oriental Grocery Store at 65 Court Street south yesterday afternoon, Thursday May 12,2022

TBPS MEDIA RELATIONS COORDINATOR SCOTT PARADIS WILL NOT TELL THE PUBLIC ABOUT THIS ROBBERY

After reviewing video surveillance of the incident, the female suspect had tried to grab a phone from an employee, but the employee would not surrender it.

The suspect began swinging the knife wildly, missing the employee, but the striking the wall in the business several times.

The suspect then stole a box of cookies and a carton of eggs.

Thunder Bay Police located and arrested the suspect on Ambrose Street at 6:06pm

A 26 year old YOLANDA SAKANEE of 277 Pearl Street was criminally charged with:

  • -robbery with knife
  • -mischief (damage to the wall)
  • -breach of probation

SAKANEE has outstanding criminal charges of assault on her cousin where she punched her several times, draggged her by hair down stairs and pulled her shirt off.

SAKANEE spent the night in custody at Balmoral Police Station and made a bail court appearance this morning, Friday May 13,2022.

Justice of the Peace Anna Gibbon ordered SAKANEE be released on $500 no deposit bail with conditions:

  • -reside at her apartment at 277 Pearl Street
  • -no contact with victims
  • -no weapons unless she is participating in traditional hunting on the Landsdowne House Indian Reserve

SAKANEE has several future court dates. The next one is June 24,2022

Sadly, TBPS Media Relations Coordinator Scott Paradis hasn’t told the public that a knife swinging robbery happened or an arrest made.

In fact, Paradis rarely tells the public about criminals & he certainly won’t show their pictures.

TBPS Media Relations Coordinator Scott Paradis & his boss, Director of Communications Chris Adams have repeatedly lied to the public and put public safety at risk.

TBPS Police Chief Sylvie Hauth permits this laziness & incompetence to occur. Her leadership at TBPS is currently under criminal investigation by the OPP. Having two former TBLAZYWATCH employees working in communications at TBPS has been a disaster for years.
