Arrest following an armed attack in Sainte-Thérèse

The police officers of the Thérèse-De Blainville police department arrested a 29-year-old man on the  morning of  Friday the 25th February 2022, following a call at the emergency room at the 911 central by the victim. The latter, a woman in her sixties, was transported to a hospital in the region to treat injuries that were not life-threatening.

The police are currently with the victim in order to obtain a first version of the events. Witnesses will be interviewed shortly, and the crime scene will be thoroughly analyzed by investigators and the forensic identification service. “The most plausible hypothesis at present is that the suspect assaulted a neighbor on the landing, armed with a blunt object. The reason for this attack has not been determined at this stage,” explained Martin Charron, spokesperson for the RIPTB.
