MAN ARRESTED AFTER 4-DAY AMBER ALERT FACES MORE CHARGES
A Quebec man arrested after an Amber Alert that spanned four days is now facing nine additional charges. The 36-year-old man, who was arrested on Sept. 5 in Ste-paule, Que., roughly 400 kilometres northeast of Quebec City, has now been charged with kidnapping his three-year old son, attempted murder using a prohibited weapon and attempting to murder peace officers using a firearm. He also faces several other firearms-related charges, including stealing a firearm. The man, who was the subject of a manhunt that briefly stretched into New Brunswick, was initially charged with discharging a firearm with intent, in an effort to avoid his arrest. He was scheduled to appear in court Thursday as a bail hearing continues.
