Police officers in Mississauga are actively searching for a male suspect who allegedly made degrading comments to a woman who was wearing a hijab.
The incident took place around 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday near Dundas Street West and Hurontario Street when the 26-year-old woman was on her way home from work. That’s when a man had apparently approached her grabbing her by the shoulders.
The victim did not suffer any injuries, but the suspect did manage to flee the scene.
Investigators say the suspect is a man who is white, between 30-40 years old, between 5’8 to 5’10 tall with a goatee and red-brown hair.
Anyone with information is asked to call Peel Police or Crime Stoppers.
