Laval Police seek home invasion suspect

The Laval Police Department is asking the public to help find a crime suspect named Mathieu Hrycyk, who is wanted following a home invasion in which two persons were injured.

A warrant for his arrest was issued on Feb. 5 on charges of holding a person against their will, assault, making death threats and possession of a dangerous weapon.

During the night of Jan. 28, Hrycyk along with an accomplice allegedly turned up at a home in Fabreville. Once inside, they threatened and wounded two people with a knife.

One of the victims sustained a knife wound to the upper body, while the other was injured on the thigh. Both were taken to hospital with significant injuries, although they were released the same day.
