Suspect Arrested After Fleeing Routine Traffic Stop in Laval

Laval police has recently confirmed that the Sûreté du Québec has arrested a suspect on early Friday, who brusquely fled an overnight traffic stop by Laval police, i.e. an incident that got off-center when a police cruiser was hit and a Laval officer fired two gunshots. Constable Franco Di Genova, from Laval force, confirmed that there were no injuries during the incident that took place at 2:15 a.m.

Constable Di Genova revealed that the 20-year-old suspect was arrested at about 5:25 a.m. by officers from the Lachute SQ detachment. He explained that even though Laval police did not have any record of him, “he is known to other police forces,” where “he has cases pending.” The constable elucidated that the incident took place at a routine traffic stop, where patrol officers encountered a 2003 Pontiac Sunfire on along Dussault Ave. near Cartier Blvd. W., in the Laval-des-Rapides sector near Highway 15. The car’s lights were off when the officers pulled it over, which had a male driver and two women.

The suspect failed to produce a driver’s licence, vehicle registration or proof of insurance, and while the constable checked on the name provided by the driver and the vehicle’s plate, Di Genova stated that “the young man … puts the car in reverse, and impacts with the cruiser.” Consequently, he added that “at this point, the officer who is driving gets out of the vehicle, and shouts out at the driver: ‘Put the car in Park, turn off the engine and step out of the vehicle.’ ”
