THUNDER BAY — One person was taken to hospital after police responded to a robbery call in the city's north side.

Thunder Bay police said officers were called to an area of Carrie Street late Wednesday afternoon after receiving reports of an assault. 

When officers arrived at the home, they learned a man was accusing others of stealing his property before attacking them. Police quickly learned that the accused was the one in the process of taking things that didn't belong to him, and then ran away. 

The suspect was located shortly after, only two blocks away from the initial scene and arrested. 

Paramedics provided treatment to one victim, who was transported to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre. 

A 39-year-old Thunder Bay man has been charged with robbery with violence and resisting a peace officer. The accused has been remanded into custody after a court hearing on Thursday.
