Quickly, the authorities located the type vehicle “pick-up” and a chase ensued. The vehicle was finally intercepted on Highway 40 near Repentigny.

However, the suspect fled on foot. A vast search operation did not make it possible to find the suspect, explained Nicolas Scholtus, spokesperson for the Sûreté du Québec (SQ).

Assistance from several SQ stations as well as the Repentigny police department was necessary in this operation, said Lieutenant Ricard.
