On September 15, 2021 B’nai Brith Canada reported:
A 26-year-old man is facing seven charges stemming from a vicious attack on an elderly Jewish employee inside a Liquor Control Board of Ontario (LCBO) store in Toronto’s west end.
On a summer’s evening, the accused allegedly entered the liquor store and attempted to purchase beer. When asked by the cashier to produce identification showing he was of legal age, he became belligerent, prompting another employee to approach in support of the cashier.
The accused then called this second LCBO employee “a dirty f*cking Jew,” and lunged at him. As the melee developed, the attacker also hit the employee in the back with a wine bottle, threw other items at him and finally punched him in the face, briefly knocking him unconscious. The victim required stitches and was forced to take more than a week off work.
