Toronto police have arrested a woman in a mischief investigation after a car that was parked at a Jewish school and community daycare was vandalized.
Police originally said they were investigating it as a hate-motivated incident, but in an update later Friday afternoon said that was no longer the case.
“Through further investigation, it has been determined that this was not a hate motivated crime, as previously reported,” a release states.
Officers were called to the school in the Bathurst Street and Wilson Avenue area at around 1:08 a.m. on Saturday, Nov., 25 after reports that a vehicle in the parking lot was damaged with a rock.
The incident was captured on security video and police say they were able to identify a suspect.
On Wednesday, Dec. 6, an arrest was made.
Madeleine Folk, 33, of Toronto has been charged with mischief under $5,000 and two counts of fail to comply with probation.
