In Salluit, two officers of the Kativik Regional Police Force (KRPF) rescued a woman from a life threatening situation on March 26, 2019.
Mathieu Verret-Dion and Frederik Grenier were responding to a distress call
with very limited information. Using their field experience, the two police
officers were able to piece together the partial information that helped them
pinpoint the location where the victim, Sarah Ilisituk, was being held against
her will. Once located, Ms. Ilisituk who had been stabbed was saved from
certain death by the swift intervention of the KRPF officers.
officers promptly arrested the aggressor and took him into custody. The suspect
has been charged and is awaiting court proceedings. Ms. Ilisituk, who was
treated for stabbing and minor injuries, has been released from hospital. “Thank
you Fred and Mathieu for saving my life,” Ms. Ilisituk said, knowing that if it
were not for the quick response and rapid intervention of the police officers,
the worse could have happened to her.
