Toronto police have arrested a male suspect wanted for an alleged hate-motivated crime.

According to police, on Monday, July 23, a man confronted two men as they walked with their family at the Jack Layton Ferry Terminal located at 9 Queens Quay West.

Police say the suspect repeatedly yelled at the men and assaulted and threatened one man, and assaulted the other.

Throughout the recorded exchange, which lasts for over four minutes, the man hurls a barrage of insults at the group, asking them where they are from, and constantly repeating that it’s his province.

Ball is scheduled to appear in court at Old City Hall on Friday, July 27.
