Immigrant suspect was not immediately released. He is expected to appear on a video channel on Saturday in the Quebec Criminal Criminal Court. If any allegations are made, they will be determined by the prosecutors, said Constant Carolina Shevrefils.
Father Claude Groe, 77 years old, was taken to a hospital and restored, said Shevrefils.

Grove celebrated the mass of about 60 people in the church, and the audience watched the event happen live when the suspect went to the priest and hit the knife a few times with a sharp object, ̵
The police were called at the church at 8:40. The video showed that Grove was pushed back when a man approached, and then falls and rises after an attack. The parishioners separated the attacker from the priest.
