Suspects wanted in assault on senior

Montreal police are still looking for suspects who allegedly ganged up on a senior to savagely beat an elder in order to steal his money last summer in downtown Montreal.

The violent crime was committed between June 28 and 30. The events occurred near Place de la Paix, located near the intersection of Saint-Laurent and René-Lévesque boulevards, in the heart of downtown.

The 70-year-old victim was allegedly first attacked by a suspect who was trying to steal his money. The septuagenarian would however have resisted, so that other individuals would have joined the first suspect to severely beat the eldest. He was reportedly punched multiple times in the face.

The victim was taken to hospital on June 30 as his condition deteriorated. At one point, the doctors even feared for his life.

It was only twenty days after the attack, when his condition stabilized, that the victim was able to be met by Montreal police investigators.

No arrests have yet been made in this case.

  • The authorities are asking anyone who may have witnessed the events or who has information likely to help the investigation progress to contact 911 or Info-Crime at 514 393-1133.
