York police seek man accused of targeting woman with hate language on Vaughan bus

CityNews | posted Tuesday, Dec 12th, 2017

Police in York Region have released a surveillance image of a man being sought for directing a racist tirade at a woman on public transit.

Police say the suspect and victim were riding a City of Vaughan bus on Oct. 24 at around 4:20 p.m.

The man approached the woman and asked if he could take a picture with her. When she refused, he began yelling at her, “making threats and using hate-bias motivated language targeting Muslims and Islam,” police said in a release.

The man is described as a white male, between 30 and 37 years old. He’s about five-foot-nine with a heavy build.

“York Regional Police will not tolerate hate crime in any form. These kinds of crimes not only hurt the community that has been targeted, but they hurt us all.”
