Police investigating after homophobic sign hung on east Mountain balcony
Police are investigating after a sign bearing a homophobic slur was hung from the balcony of an east Mountain apartment unit.
The offending verbiage was accompanied by other language police say wasn’t “hate/bias in nature.”
“All signs have been removed as to not offend any members of the LGBTQ community,” Det. Carmen Pietroniro, of the police hate crime/extremism unit, said Wednesday.
“At the moment, this incident is being treated as a hate/bias incident only. No criminal charges at this time.”
Nobody responded Wednesday when a reporter buzzed the unit in question at the three-storey apartment building on the corner of Bishopsgate Avenue and Mohawk Road East.
