Webster appeared in the Montreal courthouse on Aug. 12 on charges of attempted murder.


Police are still looking into the May 31 stabbing just after 1 am when a man was waiting for a bus outside of a gym on Bishop-Power Blvd. near George St. when a suspect approached him, asked him a question, stabbed him in the right side and fled on foot.

On July 7, around 10:30 pm, a suspect approached a man from behind while he sat on a bench in Ouellette Park and stabbed him in the neck. The victim was stabbed again in the back, and the suspect fled. A witness reported seeing him on a bicycle.
