QUEBEC CITY - A Quebec City homicide suspect has pleaded guilty to punching a police officer during a videotaped interrogation.

Bryan Demers Thibault admitted to the assault in court on Thursday.

The 29-year-old answered "yes" as Justice Alain Morand asked if he understood the facts presented by the prosecutor.

The assault was caught on police video in May.

The defendant turned directly towards the camera and said "can you send me someone more intelligent than this one here? I don't like him, I won't talk to this guy. Bring me back to my cell, bring me a girl, I feel like chatting with a girl."

He then threatens the policeman and hits him with his right fist.

Demers Thibault's latest conviction was added to his lengthy criminal record for assault, mischief, drug possession, theft, extortion and forgery.

Quebec City police have still not linked him to the homicide.
