An official with the province’s Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services is confirming a disturbance at the Thunder Bay District Jail yesterday.
Brent Ross reports it was “a minor inmate disturbance….following an inmate on inmate assault.
During the disturbance some small fires were set and minor damage occurred to the unit in question.”
While the ministry official tells us no staff were harmed during the incident, there is a report that one inmate was taken to hospital, a report Ross will not verify.
The incident remains under investigation.
