Toronto police have launched a robbery and hate crime investigation after a group of 17-year-old Jewish boys wearing religious garments were attacked in north Toronto Sunday evening.
Police say the four boys were walking in the area of Fairholme Ave. and Bathurst St., one block south of Lawrence Ave. W., when they were passed by another group of nine teenagers.
No description has been made about the other suspects other than they are in their “early teens.”
[…] However, four Jewish teens suffering a beating in a Hitler-inspired racial attack has done just that.
“No one should ever be attacked for their religion. Please help Toronto Police solve this hate crime/robbery investigation that occurred Sunday night,” tweeted Mayor John Tory.
A group of Orthodox Jewish kids being punched, kicked and told “Hitler was coming back” on the streets of Toronto? It happened Sunday in the Bathurst St.-Lawrence Ave. area.
Toronto Police are rightly investigating this as a “hate crime and a robbery.” They already have one suspect in custody and are looking for nine more they describe as “young” people.
CJ News has the best information, but still zero descriptions despite one attacker being in custody. So far, no CBC press conference or special appeal from the PMO is known about. As far as we know, no Asian tried to cut any hijabs nearby. Thats the important thing.
