Police are looking for other victims of a suspected sexual predator who was arrested Tuesday evening in Laval.

Yannick Labelle, 32, faces charges related to the kidnapping and sexual attack of a woman in Chomedey.

The attack allegedly happened at 8 p.m. on July 14 on Curé-Labelle Boulevard.

Labelle allegedly pepper-sprayed the woman before kidnapping her and locking her in the trunk of a car. She was let go after being assaulted.

Laval police spokesman Franco Di Genova said the man had allegedly tried assaulting another woman an hour before, but she fought back and the suspect fled.

Di Genova said the man's elaborate tattoos helped identify him.

Labelle should face charges of kidnapping, confinement and sexual assault.

Authorities believe the man could have done this before. They are asking for the public's help in finding more of his victims.

The suspect returns to court on August 8.
