Teen arrested following attempted murder outside Mont-Royal metro station
Montreal police say they've arrested a 17-year-old boy on suspicion of perpetrating two attempted murders and an armed assault outside the Mont-Royal metro station earlier this month.
The incident happened just before 1 a.m. on July 2nd. Police say the boy and two other accomplices tried to assault three men, ranging in age form 29 to 32.
The men apparently witnessed an altercation on a metro car moments before, in which the suspects were involved.
The suspects stabbed, punched and kicked the men outside the metro station before fleeing.
The boy appeared in youth court on Friday afternoon to face charges of aggravated assault and mischief.
A suspected accomplice, who's 20 years old, was also arrested, but was then freed until police get more evidence against him.
Police are looking for another 17-year-old in the case.
