Rumble at youth centre in Sherbrooke

Police were called to a youth centre in the Eastern Townships last evening to quell a tense situation involving half a dozen teenagers.  

The staff at the Centre Val-du-Lac centre summoned help when the teenagers, aged 16 and 17, ignored their instructions and began harassing and threatening them.  

Sherbrooke police say patrol officers met with resistance when they took the six teens into custody. 

The adolescents are being scheduled for appearances in youth court, accused of, among other things, assaulting the officers.
