The shocking details of Alek Minassian’s, the Toronto van attacker, police interview have been revealed. A year after the interview was recorded, it has now been released to the public, and the findings are disturbing. Minassian, who is charged with murdering ten people after intentionally crashing a van into a crowded city sidewalk in North York back in 2018, opened up about his motives to police hours after the horrific incident.
During his four-hour interview with police, the 26-year-old discussed his desire to start an incel rebellion and his chilling relationship with mass murderer Elliot Rodger. The attacker also admitted that he felt "accomplished" with the crime that he committed.
On April 23, 2018, Minassian plowed a rental van into a sidewalk at Yonge St. and Finch Ave. in Toronto. Ten people were killed, and 16 others were injured and rushed to the hospital. Sunnybrook Hospital in North York received seven patients from the accident. Witnesses of the crime aftermath recalled seeing orange tarps covering victims' bodies near the scene.
The tragedy, which is still vividly remembered today, is now being rediscovered after an Ontario judge granted access for the video interview that was recorded back in 2018 to be shared publicly this week.

In the interview, Minassian described himself as being part of a collective. “It’s basically a movement of angry incels such as myself who are unable to get laid, therefore we want to overthrow the Chads, which would force the Stacys to be forced to reproduce with the incels," CTV reported.
Incel is a short form for “involuntarily celibate.” The term describes men who are frustrated that attractive women will not have sex with them because they believe themselves to be “ugly” or “too nice.”
“I felt angry they would give their love and affection to obnoxious brutes,” Minassian said according to the Post while describing his failure to attract women, “because I consider myself a supreme gentleman.”
At the end of the interview, Minassian is asked how he felt about what he had done. His response was, “I feel like I accomplished my mission,” and when pressed further about what he would say to the families of his victim he responded, “I honestly don’t know.”
