Man dies in Vaudreuil-Dorion dispute
Police are releasing few details following a June 21 altercation in Vaudreuil-Dorion that left 39-year-old Maxime Alexandre Bélanger dead.
“At 11:30 last night, officers from the Vaudreuil-Soulanges East detachment responded to a call about a dispute between two men on Caron Street,” said Sûreté du Québec spokesperson Sgt. Ingrid Asselin June 22. “When they arrived they found one man seriously injured. He later died in hospital.”
A 38-year-old man was arrested and appeared at the Vallefield Courthouse June 23. Police did not specify what, if any, weapons were used though other media outlets report the victim was hit with a baseball bat and stabbed after he jumped the fence to complain about noise.
The suspect has been identified as Deyver Andres Aguilar Céspedes.
Break and enter
A man in his 30s was slightly injured in the early morning hours of June 18 following a break and enter at his home on St-Jean street in Hudson.
“Suspects entered the premises and overpowered the victim,” said Sgt. Ingrid Asselin. “They stole computer equipment before fleeing the scene.” Asselin said the Major Crimes Unit was investigating. The victim did not require treatment in hospital and no arrests have been made.
