City police arrested a 26-year-old man who refused to stop for officers, crashed his vehicle and fled the scene on foot.

Officials with the Thunder Bay Police Service say the man failed to stop for police just before 10 p.m. Sunday.

The car driven by the accused man crashed with another vehicle at the intersection of Cumberland and Wolseley Streets. The man then tried to flee from the area on foot.

Officers found the man hiding under the deck of a home on St. James Street.

Officers found brass knuckles, which had a switchblade built in, a Taser, a knife and a large quantity of cash on the man at the time of the arrest.

Police say the man had eight outstanding charges on warrants.

  • Police have charged the man with:
  • Dangerous driving
  • Fleeing from police
  • Assaulting a police officer
  • Breach of recognizance
  • Possession of a prohibited weapon (three counts)
  • Possession of weapons contrary to a court order (two counts)
  • Failing to attend court (two counts)
  • Driving with a suspended licence
  • Driving without validated permit

The suspect is expected to appear in court Monday.

The investigation continues.
