Quebec police are asking for the public's help in locating three suspects who allegedly committed criminal harassment in Beauport on August 27th. The three people, one of whom was armed with a stick, spread fear after ringing the doorbell of a residence in the middle of the night.
On August 27, 2022 around 2 a.m., the three suspects showed up at the door of a residence in the Beauport sector. They are ringing insistently, specifies the Service de police de la Ville de Québec (SPVQ). The suspects hide their faces and one of them has a stick in his possession. They end up leaving the place a few minutes later.
According to the SPVQ, the suspects caused a strong feeling of insecurity among the victims since another similar event occurred on August 24 at the same residence.
The suspects could face charges of criminal harassment, trespassing at night, mischief, carrying a weapon in a dangerous design and wearing a disguise.
Police are concerned about the increase in such crimes since the beginning of the summer.
“Since the beginning of the summer, we have noticed that the ringing and leaving phenomenon has increased in severity. In this case, criminal offenses have been committed, which seriously affects citizens' sense of security”
