MONTREAL, Canada – A person armed with a hatchet and a twig used to repel bears attacked worshipers at a mosque Saturday in Canada however nobody was critically damage, police mentioned.

The 24-year-old entered the mosque within the city of Mississauga, a suburb of Toronto, and sprayed individuals earlier than being subdued by members of the congregation till police arrived and arrested him.

Some members of the congregation sustained minor accidents from the bear spray.

At this level investigators assume the incident was an remoted act and are contemplating hate as a potential motive, police mentioned in an announcement.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau put out a tweet condemning the assault as “extremely disturbing.”

“I strongly condemn this violence – which has no place in Canada – and I’m retaining the group in my ideas right now,” Trudeau wrote.

Different public figures joined within the refrain of condemnation together with the mayor of Toronto and the Ontario provincial prime minister.

The imam of the mosque, Ibrahim Hindy, praised the braveness of the worshipers who subdued the attacker.

“Our group won’t ever be damaged and we refuse to be intimidated,” he tweeted.

In June in Ontario, a person driving a pick-up truck intentionally ran over a Canadian household of Pakistani origin, killing 4 individuals.

Police mentioned it was a case of Islamophobia.
