'Oily' man faces charges


THUNDER BAY, Ont.—A man from Thunder Bay, Ont., is facing multiple charges after an unusual weekend incident in the city.

Local police say they were called to an area where a half-dressed man covered in what appeared to be cooking oil was allegedly wandering into traffic.

When officers approached, police say he fled to a nearby home belonging to people he did not know and got inside.

The man allegedly refused to leave the home and tried to hit police officers who arrived on the scene to arrest him.

He is now facing four charges including assaulting a peace officer and forcible entry.
