On August 11, 2016, a woman shouting “Allah” drove over two officers from the Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal (Police Service of the City of Montreal), reported TVA Nouvelles.
The officers were standing outside a police station in North Montreal when the incident occurred.
“A lady in her 40’s made a dangerous driving manoeuvre at the police in Arrondissement de Montreal-Nord 39” said police commander Jonathan Martel.
The woman tried to speed away after hitting a police car. According to information obtained by TVA News, the woman reportedly shouted “Allah”.
“According to her behaviour and her words, one could think about an incident of a terrorist nature, but after investigation it was confirmed that there was no link to terrorist activity”, the commander assured.
The prosecutor requested a psychological evaluation of the woman who is facing charges of dangerous driving, assault and uttering threats. The woman remains in detention pending the investigation.
