Po­lice News – Man res­cued from Mont Or­ford

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Last Satur­day night in Pot­ton Town­ship, a per­son was badly hurt by a knife dur­ing an al­ter­ca­tion in­volv­ing five peo­ple at a res­i­dence on Prin­ci­pale street. The vic­tim was taken to the hospi­tal by am­bu­lance and of­fi­cers with the Sureté du Que­bec ar­rested the at­tacker on site.

Last Thurs­day, a twenty year-old man was res­cued from atop Mount Or­ford by mem­bers of the Ma­gog fire de­part­ment and the Regie de po­lice Mem­phrem­a­gog (RPM). The man was on the Cretes trail and called 911 him­self when he re­al­ized he was too ex­hausted to con­tinue. The hiker was car­ry­ing a back­pack, a bike that he had rid­den from Sher­brooke, and the tem­per­a­ture was a lit­tle over 30 de­grees Cel­sius. The res­cuers used an all-ter­rain ve­hi­cle as far as they could, then walked about four kilo­me­ters to reach the man. Af­ter re­ceiv­ing wa­ter and an en­ergy bar, the man was able to de­scend the moun­tain on his own in the com­pany of the fire­fight­ers and po­lice of­fi­cer, ar­riv­ing at the base of the moun­tain just be­fore dark.

A sus­pi­cious in­di­vid­ual was seen at the new wa­ter park in Ma­gog, film­ing chil­dren at play. The man was be­tween 45 and 55 years of age, bald on top with dark hair on the side and back and was driv­ing a black car with tinted win­dows. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can con­tact the RPM at 819 843-3334.
