Police arrest suspect in Toronto accused of wielding air gun exterior of Montreal hospital

Montreal police (SPVM) have arrested a suspect after he allegedly brought a weapon to the Jewish General Hospital and allegedly fired pellets at a nearby residence.

The SPVM said in a news release in August that they were looking for a man who brandished an air gun in front of the hospital around 6 p.m.

Reports then came in about the same suspect firing at a residence on Carlton Ave. in the Cote-des-Neiges neighbourhood. On Tuesday, police announced that a suspect was arrested in Toronto on Sept. 15. Menachem Mendel Cohen, 26, was scheduled to appear in court to face charges of intimidation with a weapon and mischief, according to the SPVM.
