An unidentified man attacked a Latino family with a baseball bat in a mall parking lot in St Thomas, Ontario, Canada, on Dec. 7.
The man wielding the bat repeatedly yelled, “We got terrorists here” and “ISIS,” while holding a yellow bat over his shoulder, reports the Toronto City News.
Twitter user filmed Mari UX filmed the man swinging the bat at her, her husband and their 13-year-old son. Mari UX noted on Twitter:
We were victims of a hate crime in St Thomas Ontario. A guy got mad, because we were talking in Spanish . He was about to hit my son who is 13th years old, but my Hubby jumped while the aggressor swings the baseball bat.
The St. Thomas Times Journal notes that a 36-year-old man was arrested at his home, and charged with aggravated assault and three counts of assault with a weapon.
