Investigators want to find 38-year-old mixed martial arts fighter turned actor Ziad Akl and his brother Elias Akl, 40, whose family resides in Laval.

Ziad appeared with Leonardo Dicaprio credited as the menacing “tattooed man” in Martin Scorsese’s psychological thriller Shutter Island, and as an inmate with Christian Bale in the movie The Fighter.
Const. Nathalie Lorrain told The Suburban in an interview that on Dec. 26, 2009, security cameras recorded the Akl brothers brutally beating an employee of the Red Light, a local after-hours club located at 1755 Lierre in Vimont.
