Toronto police are requesting the public’s assistance identifying three suspects wanted in connection with an investigation into an assault that took place in the parking lot of the Baitul Aman Masjid mosque on Danforth Avenue last week.
According to police, the victim was to his vehicle from a nearby grocery store at 7:45 p.m. on Wednesday, May 10. The victim’s vehicle was in the parking lot of the mosque which is just east of Victoria Park Avenue. Police said that while approaching his vehicle, the victim was allegedly assaulted by two of the three suspects.
One of the suspects was armed with a weapon, police said.
The first suspect is described as male, thin build, with a black hat, wearing dark clothing, a black mask and red gloves.
The second suspect is described as male, medium build, wearing dark clothing.
There is no description of the third suspect.
According to CP24, the victim of the attack was a 67-year-old man who is the mosque’s secretary. He was taken to hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
“The investigator has advised that after speaking with the victim, the attack does not appear to be hate-motivated,” police told CP24 last week.
