Longueuil metro: teenagers with sticks sow alarm

A crowd of young people, some armed with sticks, caused alarm at Longueuil metro on Friday afternoon. Nobody was hurt and even police admit there’s no apparent reason to arrest anyone.

Update: Not much of an update Saturday morning except an additional detail that some of the crowd also wore masks. CBC rather clickbaitingly headlines the story 30 masked youth with weapons but there’s no clarification the weapons were only sticks – just “at least one was also carrying a knife” although nobody got stabbed, and – as we’ve established on the blog previously – lots of people carry knives for practical, nonviolent reasons.

There have still been no arrests.
