A Toronto-area man was arrested Friday for “hate-motivated mischief,” police said, in connection with six separate incidents and vandalism reports involving a parking lot business that cost the owners and employees more than $140,000.
Assistant Chief Jennifer Evans of the Toronto Police Service said an investigation led to an arrest “in relation to a hate-motivated mischief incident which was reported to the Toronto Police Service on Thursday, April 26.”
