Suspect involved in home invasion

assault sought by police McKellar Ward

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~~~  July 5, 2020 - 17:00  (LSN)  Police Media Release States:  Police are requesting public assistance as they continue to investigate an early morning home invasion ad serious assault that occurred on the city’s north side.

Thunder Bay Police Service officers were dispatched at about 12:45 a.m. on Sunday, July 5 to a residential address in the 300 block of Pearl Street following reports of an assault that had just occurred.

When police arrived they located an unconscious female who appeared to be the victim of a recent assault. Paramedics transported the female to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre for further treatment of her serious injuries. She has since been released.

Police learned the female was attacked by an unknown male suspect who entered the home through an unlocked door. A male resident intervened to stop the assault from continuing, at which point the accused male fled the scene.

He was last seen heading eastbound down an alley behind the home that runs parallel to Pearl Street.

Members of the Thunder Bay Police Service’s Major Crimes Unit are now investigating. Police do not believe the accused knew his victim, and the attack appears to have been random and unprovoked.

The suspect is described as a male standing about 5’8” tall with a stocky build. He wore a dark plaid poncho-style hoodie at the time of the incident.

If you saw this male, know anything about the accused or incident, or noticed any suspicious activity in the area around the time of this incident, please call police at 684-1200. You can submit tips anonymously via Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, online at

If you have a residence or business in the area with exterior surveillance cameras that may have been operating during this time, please call police at 684-1200.
