Man arrested for third antisemiti­c assault


Toronto police have arrested a man facing charges for alleged antisemiti­c attacks for at least the third time this year, a Jewish advocacy organizati­on says.

In the latest alleged incident Saturday, a man approached a woman sitting on the subway platform at Lawrence station, struck up a conversati­on and assaulted her until a passerby intervened, police said.

The suspect fled the area but was arrested the next day, police added.

Michael Park, 32, of no fixed address, was charged with one count each of assault and failure to comply with a release order. He appeared in court on Monday, police said.
