A Man Is Being Charged For Pulling Hijabs Off Women's Heads In Toronto

The "hate motivated" attacks happened at a TTC bus stop.

Toronto Police have arrested and charged a man who committed a disgusting "hate-motivated" spree of attacks in Toronto earlier this week. Three Muslim women have come forward about the incident, which happened between the hours of 3:30 PM and 9:30 PM on Wednesday, June 6th.

Each of the women were attacked in the same spot, waiting for a TTC bus at Jane Street and Wilson Avenue, in Toronto's Downsview neighbourhood. The man reportedly approached them and violently pulled their hijabs from their heads.

Thankfully, none of the victims sustained any injuries, but are certainly a little bit traumatized.

Police identified the man as 42-year-old Sayed Ahmed Abdullahi, a Toronto resident. He was arrested yesterday, and appeared in court today at 1000 Finch Avenue West. He faces three assault charges, and mischief under $5,000.
