Seeking Suspect Who Made Death Threats

Sep 29 – Police are asking for the public’s help to identify a suspect alleged to have made death threats to a pair of volunteers putting up electoral signs on August 30 in Chomedey.

The incident occurred at 4:30 p.m. near the intersection of boulevards Souvenir and l’Avenir. Two volunteers for the CAQ team were putting up and repairing posters for their political party representatives when the suspect walked by and told them not to bother fixing the sign since he would come back later and tear it down.

The death threat was allegedly uttered when one of the volunteers pulled out their phone and took the man’s picture. In response, the suspect used his own cell phone to photograph the license plate on the volunteer’s vehicle and declared, “Your life is over. I know where you live. I’m coming, I have contacts. You’re going to die.”
