Vancouver police investigate a possible hate crime.
A man in Vancouver is punched in the mouth on a restaurant patio for speaking a foreign language (Turkish) and being shouted at by his alleged assailant that he was speaking in a “f—ing foreign language.”
Punch appears to have followed a vocal exchange at Starbucks on Thursday. Punched individual says he was not disturbing anyone.
Two men, he alleges, challenged him with “you f—ing piece of s–t, is your f—ing call finished?” and “you’re talking in a f—ing foreign language. Go back to your own country.
Punched man says the man who punched him may not be from Canada himself.
