The events took place on Thursday, March 8, International Women’s Day, and took place at approximately 4 am. Multiple messages were written in graffiti-style, all containing “hateful content targeting women.”
Little is known about the suspect. At the scene of the crime, he can be seen as a light-skinned male, wearing a cap, a thick winter coat, and loose-fitting jeans. His height, weight, and other attributes of his appearance, however, are unknown.
He was also caught via closed-circuit TV (CCTV) and in turn, used obscene gestures at the camera.
Anyone who can help identify and locate the suspect is asked to contact Info-Crime Montreal at 514-393-1133. All information will be handled anonymously and confidentially.
