Large police operation in Gaspésie: Steve Soucy will undergo an assessment to Philippe-Pinel

MISE À DAY

The man who caused a major police operation in Saint-Elzéar-de-Bonaventure earlier this month will be assessed by psychiatrists. 

The man in crisis had forced the sending of an emergency alert across Quebec on September 2, when he was wanted by the Sûreté du Québec.

After a passage at Maria's hospital, Steve Soucy's case was deemed too heavy and the authorities preferred to send him to the Philippe-Pinel Institute, in Montreal, to undergo a full assessment on responsibility.

He faces charges of death threats against police officers, possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, possession of a weapon without a license and possession of a weapon when he was prohibited from having one. .

The man is due back in court on November 14.
