Lévis police on Thursday arrested a 23-year-old man suspected of posting online threats against police on social media.

The man was arrested as he left his home in a car. A search of the vehicle by police yielded knives.

Police said the suspect may face charges of inciting hatred and uttering threats.

Police allege that on Nov. 18 and while commenting on a Facebook video entitled “Zealous Police,” the suspect wrote that he wanted to do as in Colombia and kill police officers on street corners.

They allege further that six days after that post, the suspect, commenting on a video showing an intervention by Montreal police, asked where the operation was taking place so he could go there and kill police.

Police said that after his arrest the suspect was questioned by investigators then released after signing a promise to appear in court in Quebec City on Dec. 15.
