Just after noon on August 22nd, a man who was unhappy with the service he received at the Caisse Desjardins du Lac-Memphremagog, in Magog, loudly threatened to come back to the financial institution with a firearm. Well-known to the police, the 69 year-old man, from Magog, was arrested when he returned to his place of residence at around 3:00 pm. He was kept in custody and appeared in court the next day to face the charge of uttering death threats.
Also appearing at the Sherbrooke Court House was a young 19 year-old man who, having an arrest warrant, gave a false name to police officers the day before; a 33 year-old man who was seen out on the streets at 2:00 in the morning, although under a curfew to be home after 11:00 pm; and two suspects from the Montreal region who were arrested after a brawl in a Magog bar at around 3:00 am. After becoming aggressive with the victim with a beer bottle, they fled the bar and were arrested by the police not far from the premises. The victim was treated at the hospital for head wounds. The suspects, aged 28 and 34, were accused of armed assault causing bodily harm. One was also charged with breaking bail conditions.
