Officers said they were called to the area of Yonge Street and Front Street East shortly after 5:30 a.m. on Sunday.

The accused allegedly wrote antisemitic graffiti on the window of a business in the area.

Paul Cote, of Toronto, is facing charges of mischief under $5,000 and breach probation.

The charges have not been tested in court.

They ask anyone with information to contact police at 416-808-3506 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers. Top Stories
