Since the attack, the victim has been in and out of coma, and remains hospitalized with serious injuries.

Savard was arrested Thursday night by Montreal police while he was parking a luxury SUV that had been reported stolen.  He was first questioned by Montreal police before being transferred to Laval police, who then placed him under arrest. Savard was arraigned in court on Friday, and was scheduled to be back in court on Monday for a bail hearing.

The motives behind the assault are still unclear, police said.

Police Ask for Help to Identify Package-Stealing Suspect

Aug 2 – Laval police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect who has been stealing packages from the front porches of multiple Laval residents.

Police say the suspect is a white male in his early fifties who travels by bicycle.

He simply strolls up to the front door of a house where a package has been delivered and left on the doorstep, snatches it without even knowing the contents, and rides away on his two-wheeler.

In an era when consumers are shopping more and more online and having items delivered, Laval police offer their recommendations to counter crimes of opportunity such as this:

To prevent package theft, police suggest that anyone having a package delivered to their home should require a signature at time of delivery, or have the item sent to their workplace.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact the Laval police via their info-line at 450-662-INFO (4636). All calls are treated confidentially.
