Michel Duchaussoy, the man wanted in connection with the death of a Montreal taxi driver killed yesterday, has been arrested.

Longueuil police arrested the 43-year-old suspect on Nobel Street in Boucherville, on Montreal's South Shore, Thursday evening.

Duchaussoy did not resist.

Police had been looking for him since Wednesday morning, when a 45-year-old taxi driver was found unconscious in his car in the Montreal neighbourhood of Côte-des-Neiges. 

Montreal police say they got many helpful tips from the public.

They will give more details about the arrest during a news conference early Friday morning.
