THUNDER BAY -- City police continue to hold the scene at a Vickers Street home where a violent assault took place on Monday night. 

Thunder Bay Police say one person suffered serious injuries in the attack, which took place in a home located across the street from the Vickers Street Fire Station. 

It's the second violent incident at the home in 18 months. In June 2017, 22-year-old Jonah Lawson Yellowhead was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault following a double stabbing that took place at the residence. Two people, a 23-year-old female and a 26-year-old male, were sent to hospital with non life-threatening injuries in that incident.
