Montreal police are investigating an alleged racist verbal attack caught on camera.
Twitter user misssmoroccco shared the video to her channel on Tuesday night, which shows a man verbally attacking “two women and a child” in Montreal’s Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough.
According to the social media post, the confrontation occurred “simply while the two were speaking in Arabic.”

The man can be heard on video calling the women behind the camera a “bitch” and is seen asking the child “demande à ta maman si je peux te fourer ta mère. Enfant de salope.”
This translates to something along the lines of “Ask your mom if I can fuck her. Son of a bitch.”
