Failed firebombings at 4 Quebec government offices
Vandals armed with suspected Molotov cocktails and red paint hit several buildings in Montreal overnight, in an hour-long spree that left windows damaged and buildings defaced.
Montreal police say there were at least four attempted firebomb attacks at buildings containing provincial government offices after 3 a.m. ET Monday.
The buildings hit include 750 Marcel-Laurin Bvld, 3269 Saint-Jacques Blvd., 7077 Beaubien St. E. and 7171 Beaubien St. E.
“Once police arrived on scene, they found bottles [containing] liquid,” said Montreal police Const. Yannick Ouimet, adding that the bottles were tossed through smashed windows.
Police haven’t confirmed what was inside the bottles, but they believe they were meant to be incendiary devices.
None of them ignited, however, and no one was hurt.
