An elderly woman was randomly attacked by a man.

While near Hillcrest Park, a 42-year-old Thunder Bay man allegedly pushed the woman to the ground and assaulted her on Thursday evening.

Thunder Bay Police Service officers with the Primary Response Unit were dispatched to the 100 block of High Street South at Hillcrest Park for a reported assault in progress just after 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 4.

Police learned the male was not known to the victim and the attack appeared to be random and unprovoked.

The victim sustained injuries and was believed to be in significant pain. She declined EMS assistance, but was transported to the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre by a friend for further evaluation and treatment of her injuries.

The Thunder Bay man was arrested when police arrived and is in police custody.
