Sudden Death | Thunder Bay 2019



Westfort Ward

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~~  August 29, 2021  (LSNews) A man broke into a home in the 900 block of Holt Place yesterday, Saturday August 28,2021 and assaulted a woman with a knife.

Hardworking Thunder Bay Police Officers responded quickly and arrested a known criminal.

A 28 year old DAVID JAMES DEWAR was criminally charged with:

  • -break & enter
  • -assault with a weapon (knife)
  • -breach of release order
  • -breach if his November 17, 2020 probation order

DEWAR has outstanding criminal charges of breach of probation.

DEWAR spent the night in custody at Balmoral Police Station and appeared by phone in Bail Court this morning, Sunday August 29,2021 before Her Worship, Justice of the Peace Jennifer Neill.

Provincial Crown Attorney Piera Pasloski has significant concerns that DEWAR will reoffend if released.

DEWAR was transported to the Thunder Bay Jail and has another court appearance this week.

As per usual practice, the Director of Communications at TBPS, along with his local taxpayer subsidized media buddies at  are refusing to tell the public. They simply don’t care if violent home invaders attack women.

Westfort Counsellor Kristen Oliver has made no public comments about the violence against women in the ward she represents. She also sits on the Thunder Bay Police Services Board and says nothing. KRISTEN OLIVER is a HUGE Liberal supporter.

Another good job by hardworking TBPS Officers
