UPDATE: Three arrests made after woman found injured on Joliette street

SQ thinks she was thrown out of a moving vehicle

Provincial police have arrested three people after a bound and injured woman was found in the middle of Arthur-Normand St. in Joliette Tuesday night.

At around 11 p.m. Tuesday, police received a 9-1-1 call about a pedestrian hit by a vehicle.

Once police got there, patrol officers found a 34-year-old woman in the freezing cold street with her hands tied and her teeth knocked out.

“It looks like she was thrown out of the car and left on the street,” Audrey-Anne Bilodeau, Sûreté du Québec spokesperson, said.

Officers made the three arrests shortly after, and also seized a car matching the description.

The woman is in stable condition and will be questioned in hospital.

Police say the victim is not the woman who went missing from Little Burgundy last Friday.
