Quebec City (Quebec) August 21, 2014 – A road-rage incident has led to the arrest of one man and the hospitalization of another. Police were called to a parking lot on Blvd. de la Colline on Tuesday afternoon to what appeared to be a car accident involving injury. After arriving on scene, police found the injured person was the victim of an attempt by another person, Dominic Dufour, to ram him and his car as the victim was attempting to exit his vehicle. Police sent the 19-year-old victim to the hospital and then went after the suspected aggressor. Dominic Dufour, 33, was finally found and arrested several hours later in Beauport on the other side of the city.

M. Dufour has been charged with leaving the scene of an accident, armed aggression, and dangerous driving causing bodily harm. The arm involved is his own Hyundai Accent which he used to ram the victim and his car. All the charges involved could retain M. Dufour in prison for a maximum of 14 years.

The accused is being held at a detention centre and is being kept under medical surveillance following suicide threats. M. Dufour was stopped in 2009 in Nova Scotia for sexual assault, to which he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 30 days in prison.

M. Dufour will appear in Québec City court Friday afternoon to plead his case. The victim of the attack does not appear to be suffering from any external injuries.
