A 23-year-old who allegedly savagely beat the poor 75-year-old janitor of a building in downtown Montreal in late March has finally been arrested.
Larry Braddly Boucard was arrested on Wednesday in accommodation in Plateau-Mont-Royal, where he had been hiding since the attack at the end of March.
Inside the apartment, officers found two 9mm handguns, a high-capacity magazine, ammunition, several cell phones, crack cocaine and nearly $3,000 in cash.
A 19-year-old man who was at the scene when the police intervened was also arrested.
Larry Braddly Boucard appeared at the Montreal courthouse on several counts.
The facts of which he is accused took place in an apartment building on rue De La Gauchetière.
On March 22, the suspect allegedly first threatened a woman in one of the apartments and then allegedly beat the concierge there before fleeing.
