It will be a good idea to avoid Cartier where the boulevard crosses highway 15 this weekend, Laval police advise.
“Transport Quebec plans to progressively shut down the highway from 9 p.m. onward, April 6,” Const. Franco di Genova told The Suburban. “As of 11 p.m., it will be completely closed, to permit repairs to the Cartier overpass.”
“Vehicles traveling eastbound on Cartier won’t be affected, but westbound traffic will be diverted along Clermont, Lévesque and Micro streets while work is underway,” he explained. “Police will be on hand to monitor traffic control, and we’re asking motorists to show patience during the detour.”
Repairs to the westbound side of the overpass will be conducted during a second phase, he said, at a date that remains to be determined.
Police are looking for two men and a woman after an incident at 4765 Lévesque West, March 27.
“A woman rang the doorbell to the apartment at around 11:30 p.m.,” recounted Const. di Genova. “When the victims opened the door, she and two other gentlemen entered.”
“One carried a handgun and another, a rifle,” he continued. “At some point during a discussion between all parties, a shot was fired. At that point, one of the men and the woman left the premises, leaving the two victims and the remaining suspect in the apartment.”
“A fight ensued, and the last suspect fled the apartment running,” Const. di Genova said. “The victims suffered superficial wounds and are cooperating with the investigation.”
“They are not known to police,” he emphasized.
A 23-year-old black man was attacked while leaving the Énergie Cardio gym, across the street from Laval’s criminal courthouse, March 22.
“The victim left the gym at around 12:50 p.m., after training with two buddies,” recounted Const. di Genova. “He was stabbed in the abdomen while heading toward his vehicle, but managed to make his way back into the gym, where police and ambulance were called.”
“Urgences Santé transported him to hospital, and his life is not in danger,” he added. “However, he is known to us, and not really cooperating with investigators.”
Thieves grabbed more than $30,000 in high-end cameras and photographic equipment, after they broke in to Gosselin Photo, March 25.
“Police received a call from the alarm company at around 1 a.m.,” said Const. di Genova.
This is the second burglary in two weeks at the camera store, located at 1637 le Corbusier.
“During the previous break-in, some $75,000 worth of photographic equipment was stolen,” he recalled.
Teen fight draws blood
Violence erupted during a squabble between two groups of male youths, March 27, near St. Martin High School in Chomedey.
“During an altercation at 4135 Louis Payette, around 12:55 p.m., one young man was stabbed in the leg,” said Const. di Genova. “He was taken by Urgences Santé to hospital, treated and released. He is cooperating with detectives.”
