A Toronto man has been arrested for reportedly roundhouse-kicking a female pro-life demonstrator and harassing several others at a pro-life rally in late September.
Jordan Hunt, 26, turned himself into police Oct. 6 and has been charged with multiple counts of assault and mischief related to the event.
Pro-life demonstrator Marie-Claire Bissonnette told Canada news source Global News that she and 76 other pro-life demonstrators were participating peacefully in the annual 'Life Chain' event in Toronto when she was approached by Hunt.
"This guy comes up and I guess he sees what's going on, and so he took out three markers and he drew on two of our signs, and so I shouted, 'Protect your signs,'" Bissonnette told Global News. "I guess that gave him the idea to start scribbling on people's backs, so he scribbled on five people's backs."
