Stabbing, robbery, assault keep Thunder Bay Police busy
Thunder Bay Police were busy over the holidays, dealing with a robbery, assault, and a stabbing.
Police arrived at the Intercity Mall around 2:30 p.m. ET on Boxing Day after receiving a call that a man had been stabbed and was enroute to the hospital.
A fight allegedly broke out in the mall between a group of young people, police said. A 19-year-old man was stabbed twice in the leg and suffered non-life threatening injuries.
Police arrested two men in the parking lot at the CLE grounds a short time later. Both men face several charges.
A 21-year-old man was also stabbed at the Royal Edward Arms around 9:20 p.m. on Christmas Day.
The man was taken to hospital and released, but later arrested for having numerous outstanding warrants.
Police say the stabbing appears to be isolated and are looking for a 29-year-old man in connection to the incident.
The suspect is known to police and the victim, and alcohol may have played a role in the event, police said.

The cashier was not injured.
The man is described as about six feet tall with a medium build, wearing a white hoodie with the letters "DC" written in baby blue across the chest. He was also wearing dark pants and tan shoes, and had a white hanker chief across his face.
