Toronto police say one man is facing multiple charges in three alleged hate-motivated assaults.

On Wednesday between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m., police received three calls about separate incidents at a bus stop on the corner of Jane Street and Wilson Avenue.

It’s alleged in all three incidents, the women were waiting for a bus when the man approached the women and pulled their hijabs off their heads.
