A lascivious look left a 66-year-old Laval man recovering from a collapsed lung, after he eyed the young woman waiting ahead of him in line at the dépanneur at 56 Meunier, around 7:30 p.m., April 17.
“Her boyfriend noticed and a verbal altercation ensued,” Const. Franco di Genova told The Suburban. “Once everyone paid, the dispute continued in the parking lot. After the victim got into his car, one of the two young men involved kicked the car.”
“The 66-year-old got out of his car and during the shoving match that ensued, someone stabbed him in the right shoulder with a knife, deeply enough to nick his lung.”
Doctors reinflated the collapsed lung, and expected to release the victim from hospital, April 19.
Laval police charged Jonathan Perreault, 22, and Yannick Bouffard, 25, following the altercation.
“They are expected to appear in court again this week,” said Const. di Genova.
News outlets from across Canada have been pestering Laval police to provide a photo of the young woman, whom they have not charged with an offence.
Car thief surrenders to police dog
A furry member of the Laval police canine squad helped apprehend a car thief, April 17.
“Around 2 p.m., a patrol officer spotted a very nervous driver in the parking lot of the Metro grocery store on Cartier,” recalled Const. di Genova. “When the police car turned around, the driver of the black Honda Civic took off, leading to a medium-speed chase of around 70-80 km/h.”
He said that the driver committed several traffic violations during the chase, before coming to a halt when he crashed into a store sign at another parking lot, after which he fled on foot.
“The patrol officer removed the keys from the Civic and lost sight of fleeing man,” said Const. di Genova. “That’s when the canine squad was called to the scene. They started tracking and as the dog approached a parked car on Clapin Street, the man got out from underneath, where he had been hiding, and surrendered.”
“It turned out that the car had been reported stolen five days earlier.”
Senior in coma after crossing crash
A 74-year-old Laval man was in an induced coma at the Sacré Cœur hospital trauma centre, after multiple fractures in a pedestrian accident at Dagenais and Ingrid in Fabreville, April 15.
“The man didn’t look before crossing the intersection,” Const. di Genova reported.
Despite the severe injuries, Const. di Genova said that doctors do not fear for the senior’s life.
Hospital security alert
Two Laval men found their photos in the newspaper last week, after they tried to visit a friend at the Cité de la santé superhospital.
Since their hospitalized friend had been the victim of an attempted murder, hospital officials alerted Laval police, who released the security camera photo to news media.
“They didn’t realize that their visit would cause a stir,” Sgt. Frédéric Jean told The Suburban. “Once they found out, they went to the police station, where they met with detectives.”
“It was completely harmless,” assured Sgt. Jean.
911 call leads to grow-op
Police stumbled on an indoor marijuana farm, around 10 p.m., April 18, after a woman called for an ambulance after a simple household mishap on Jolicœur Blvd.
“She was extremely intoxicated, and had fallen on the ground and cut her face,” said Sgt. Jean.
“Police were dispatched to make sure that no domestic violence was involved,” he explained. “When they arrived, the noticed a pungent smell in the house, and discovered around 100 marijuana plants.”
“Her boyfriend, who was equally intoxicated, is probably not too happy about that,” Sgt. Jean said.
