Woman arrested after allegedly threatening people with knife at store in Cedarbrae Mall

A woman was arrested on Saturday after she allegedly threatened people with a knife at a Scarborough hardware store while reportedly expressing support for the Islamic State group, CP24 has learned.

  • And so it begins.

    Enough with the political correctness. If you are charged, the mask comes off so that we can all see your face and remember you. And as the accused is an adult, a name would be nice (along with the word “allegedly” to perform the legal CYA).

      “the mask comes off”

      The mask should not be allowed any public places except for kids at holloween.

    • The more we learn about this “culture” the more disturbing it is. In Canada, using a weapon on somebody is always the last resort — life and death situations.

      In Islamic societies violence seems to be the first resort — the default reaction — and for the most petty reasons. Is the price of chicken too high? Well, then obviously the solution is to kill your local grocer! Is the store dick at Canadian Tire irritating you by following you around? Well, then the rational response is to slice his throat! Are the cashiers unhelpful? Well, then naturally the correct response is to smash them over the heads with a golf club!

      Is it just me, or is there something unusual about the way Muslim societies justify violence?

      I remember when I first went to live in Latin America my father warned me: “Be careful — your life isn’t worth a plug nickel down there”. I think my father was wrong — your life is worth at least 5 or 10 bucks in Latin America. And in the Islamic world it’s worth much less than “a plug nickel” — it isn’t even worth a penny.

    Canada is so racist.
    Always picking on the visible minority small businesswoman trying to get ahead.
    “We told her to bring back 10 metres of chain and two padlocks”.

    Newham, east London: Man with three machetes in his backpack arrested on bus by armed police officers. Not thought to be terror related. I suspect it’s related to black-on-black gang crime

    Lone wolfette, with mental problems….wonder if she thought Canadian Tire was the Canadian Embassy in Scarbourghistan.

  • Ann

    According to Sun, her 1st name is Rehab – I think whoever named her knew she needed something, another clue missed…….

      The last name – Syrian origin. Justin’s refuge ?

      • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

        Someone on Reddit /r/metacanada did a search and both names
        come up as Pakistani and Jordan.

        • Marius K

          Google shows Syrian/Palestinian

          • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

            I’m hoping it’s one of Justin’s Syrians.

            That would be blow up in his face nicely.

    Rumour has it, that she is either a Toronto Star reporter or a United Church minister.

    At least she wasn’t purchasing nuts and bolts, fertilizer and jerry cans.

      She was looking for the pressure cooker sale, couldn’t find it, and got pissed off.

  • ontario john

    Man with hammer attacks policeman in Paris, and its international news. Muslim woman attacks people with knife in Toronto screaming about ISIS, and the Canadian media ignores it. No censorship here.

      The person reading the news on Newstalk 1010 must have said the word “Allegedly” at least 5 times when reading the item this afternoon.

      It’s being covered but only locally.

      • simus1

        “local” coverage is the PC mandate for ignoring all vismin crime but if the perp is white, “then there are nation wide implications to his racism” real or imagined. Demands to change the name of the business to something with less settler privilege that is “more inclusive, less hurtful, should be acted upon at once according to experts”. (sarc/off)

    Those pesky sparrows, always getting in the way.

  • lolwut? (Deplorable Hoser)

    Someone on /r/metacanada says she’s Syrian based on a CP24 interview with a neighbor.

    Can’t find anything online for that interview.
