According to Bridgewater Police, at approximately 9:00 pm last night, Lunenburg District RCMP received a call about an attempted stolen vehicle in Hebbville. RCMP, with assistance of Bridgewater Police Service, set up a perimeter to allow the RCMP Emergency Response Team to search for the suspect.
After a search of a wooded area in Hebbville, Doucette was found and arrested without incident and suffered no injuries as the result of his arrest. EHS assessed him for his well-being.

According to Bridgewater Police he stabbed responding officer, Sgt Matt Bennett in the neck with an edged weapon. Sgt. Bennett required surgery in Halifax. Doucette’s partner suffered minor injuries and was treated and released from hospital.
