Sault Assault Suspect Caught

Sault Ste. Marie police think they’ve found the man who threatened employees at Sault businesses yesterday.

They also say 50-year-old James Jollineau assaulted some officers.

The Sault Evening News was one of the businesses Jollineau is thought to have wandered into.

Employees there told police a man came in who appeared to be drunk, and he made a gesture of racking a pump-action shotgun.

Police say Jollineau also made threatening comments to an employee at a bar on Spruce Street.

He was arrested on Ashmun Street shortly before noon yesterday.

Jollineau is in the Chippewa County Jail, charged with felonious assault and assaulting a police officer.
