Thunder Bay Police clarified Thursday that two people are already in custody related to an assault that led to a man's death.

Christopher Adams, 52, was assaulted at the corner of May and Donald streets at around 2:30 a.m. July 2.  He died of his injuries on July 8.

Police said July 10 that previous news releases had omitted the fact that two persons of interest were taken into custody shortly after the assault.  Re-Anna Mamakwa, 21, and Carl Spencer Rae, 31, are both charged with aggravated assault and remain in custody.

The department said news of the arrests was not released earlier due to a breakdown in internal communications.

Two other male persons of interest are still being sought.  Anyone with information is asked to contact the TBPS Criminal Investigations Branch at 684-1237 or Crime Stoppers via
