LPD arrests three connected to 2021 kidnapping attempt in Sainte-Rose

The Laval Police Dept. said on Tuesday they had arrested three suspects believed to be connected with a kidnapping attempt with firearms use outside a high school in Sainte-Rose in November 2021.

The LPD said they arrested Moussa Mahammed Hussein, age 21, and two other suspects who were minors at the time of the alleged incident and therefore cannot be identified.

They face charges of attempted kidnapping, assault, using a firearm during a kidnapping attempt, as well as pointing and using a firearm.

On the afternoon of Nov. 16, 2021, an altercation broke out during a break outside the school.

Although one of the victims was punched and his assailants tried to force him into a car, they were stopped by the victim’s friend, who was threatened at gunpoint, and the suspects fired a warning shot and fled.

Anyone who believes they may have useful information to help the investigation is asked to call the LPD’s info line at 450-662-4636, or 9-1-1. The file number is LVL-211116-054.
