MONTREAL – A 30-year-old woman could be charged with assault with a weapon after a man broke into her apartment on Friday night.

 

The man, 31, who was arrested in January on conjugal violence charges, broke into the apartment located on Bourget St. at the corner of St. Antoine St. in St. Henri, about 9:30 p.m. Friday.

 

Montreal police Constable Anie Lemieux said the man was not permitted to go near the woman as a condition of his release after being arrested in January.

 

Lemieux said an altercation ensued and the woman stabbed the man at least once in the upper body.

 

The man was still in hospital Saturday night with serious injuries, Lemieux said. However, his condition was stable. He could face charges of breaking and entering, and breaching conditions.

 

The woman was arrested and could face charges, but she may have been acting in self-defence, Lemieux said.

 

There were two children in the apartment at the time of the altercation. They were taken in by a family member.

Got to love how dumb the law is in this country. You can't even defend your self from an intruder.

 

I guess the politicians and police don't give a rats ass what happens to normal law abiding citizens :mad: I bet you break into a cops house or politicians house unknowingly and they stab you, the law will be on their side.

 

I hate this hypocritical system :mad:

 

As you can see I am biased. I am for the right the bare arms and self defence, but we just live in a to liberal society that lets people push people around and we have to be submissive / passive.

:stirthepot:

 

OT: I think I should really go into politics and see how many votes I can get with my views and see if people would vote :)

Je suis contre les armes à feu, mais je suis en faveur de protéger les victimes plutôts que les agresseurs. Si cet homme était mort en attanquant cette femme chez elle, eh bien, je dirais tant pis pour lui! Il connaissait les risques en entrant par infraction chez cette femme et en l'attaquant, alors je n'ai pas de pitié pour lui.

 

J'avais entendu parler d'une histoire il y a quelques années d'un voleur qui s'était introduit dans un appartement pour y faire un cambriolage et en sortant, il a glissé dans l'escalier qui n'était pas déneigé et il s'est blessé. Il aurait poursuivit avec succès sa victime qui n'avait pas déblayé ses escaliers.

Je ne sais pas si cette histoire est vrai ou si ce n'est qu'une légende urbaine, mais puisqu'on est au Québec, ça me semble dans le domaine du possible.

 

Je me demande si ce voleur a eu droit à la CSST. Suite à son accident, il ne peut plus exercer sa profession de voleur...

"The woman was arrested and could face charges, but she may have been acting in self-defence, Lemieux said."

 

Je crois tout simplement que la police n'a pas voulu faire de déclarations avant que l'enquête soit terminée et c'est tout à fait normal.

 

La Gazette a simplement voulu mettre un titre plus accrocheur!

 

Et je ne crois pas que l'on doit adopter une léglislation à l'américaine (ou je pourrais "accidentellement" abattre mon voisin parce qu'il est entré sur mon terrain, à la recherche du ballon de son fils :rolleyes:)
