Police News – Man rescued from Mont Orford
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.
