Police are sharing photos of a man they think was involved in what they’re calling a hate-motivated assault in north Scarborough over the weekend.
A man was ordering food at a restaurant at the Midtown Plaza near Sheppard and Midland Avenue on Sunday evening when another man made an anti-Asian comment against him and punched him before taking off.
The 52-year-old victim was treated for his injuries in hospital.
The suspect is described as 40 to 50, 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, and clean-shaven. He was last seen with a cut on his bald head.
Clear security camera images show the man wearing a grey sweatshirt with a red maple leaf and “Canada” in black lettering on the front.
Investigators believe he left in a four-door grey 2016 to 2018 Nissan Altima.
He was with another man described as white and bald, wearing a blue sweater, dark pants, and dark shoes.
Anyone who recognizes the man pictured is urged to contact investigators.
