A man seriously injured after being assaulted in Hochelaga

The victim, a 29-year-old man, is now out of danger.

A man was physically assaulted by three individuals on Saturday evening, in the Hochelaga-Maisonneuve district, reported the Service de police de la Ville de Montréal (SPVM). Medical authorities confirmed later that evening that his life was no longer in danger.

The event occurred around 8:40 p.m. on rue Louis-Veuillot, near rue Lacordaire. When officers arrived at the scene, they located a 29-year-old man with serious upper body injuries. He was unconscious when taken to hospital.

Three suspects allegedly used physical force to assault the victim and subsequently took the escape in a vehicle before the arrival of the police, said SPVM spokesperson Caroline Chèvrefils.

A perimeter has been set up so that the investigators and forensic identification technicians analyze the scene and can better understand the circumstances of this attack. The police also met with witnesses.

For now, the SPVM has not made any arrests.
