Montreal police had a busy night Tuesday between an attempted robbery and a case of a man allegedly uttering threats to a Quebec lawyer.
The SWAT team was called in to make an arrest in N.D.G. last night after alleged threats were made against a defence lawyer around 8 p.m.
"The SWAT team arrested the man at the corner of [Sherbrooke St. and Melrose Ave.]," said police spokesperson Dany Richer.
"Everything went fine, and the man of 56 years old is expected in court [later today]."
Police are also investigating an armed robbery downtown.
A man in his 30s suffered serious injuries to his upper body after he was held up near the intersection of Atwater Ave. and Sherbrooke St. around 10:30 p.m. last night.
He is expected to survive.
