Investigators from the West Criminal Investigations Section of the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM) are asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect of two violent stabbings that occurred in the LaSalle borough.
Thus, they invite anyone who has information to come and meet the police on Saturday from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the mobile command post set up for the occasion on Raymond Street north of Galarneau Street near Paul-Séguin Park, in the borough to the southwest of Montreal.
On May 31 around 1:15 a.m., a first victim came out of a training center and was waiting for the bus on Bishop-Power Boulevard near George Street. The suspect approached her to ask her a question and then stabbed her in the upper body. The suspect fled at the back of Place LaSalle to the west.
A few days later, on June 4 at around 9:30 p.m., a second victim was walking on Raymond Street near Paul-Séguin Park in LaSalle when she felt someone running behind her and then hit her violently. blow to the back of the neck. The suspect fled through the park.
Nearby surveillance cameras show that the suspect followed the victim for an approximate distance of 300 meters. Several elements similar to the two attacks make it possible to link them to the same suspect. His composite portrait has been made.
Anyone who believes they have information on the suspect is asked to come and meet the investigators at the command post. People who cannot get there can also dial 911 or communicate anonymously and confidentially with Info-Crime Montreal at 514 393-1133 or online.
