Man, 46, arrested in Vancouver in connection with stabbing death in Montreal's Chinatown

Montreal police (SPVM) arrested a suspect in Vancouver in connection with a homicide in Chinatown last year.

The SPVM said in a news release that Dwayne Joseph, 46, was arrested with the help of Vancouver Police after a Canada-wide warrant was issued.

He was transferred to Montreal and is scheduled to appear in court on second-degree murder charges on Wednesday.

On Nov. 6, a man in his 30s was stabbed in the upper body on Clarke and de la Gauchetiere streets and later died in the hospital.

It was the 34th homicide in Montreal in 2022.

Joseph is the third person arrested in connection with the homicide. Marckinson Cherise, 42, was charged with second-degree murder in March, and Mame Abdul Aziz Ndiaye, 31, was charged with robbery in February. Top Stories
